This is a 7-week course on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The following program is based on the internationally acclaimed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) technique. The course has been designed for those who want to use CBT in their practice or self-help, but also for those who are simply interested in learning a practical and effective technique that can help them overcome anxiety and depression, as well as other conditions.
The course will provide you with an overview of the CBT concept and its basic principles, which will allow you to begin applying it in your practice or self-help immediately.
This program is intended to serve as an introduction to CBT and provide you with the basic tools needed to apply this method in either your practice or self-help, not replace the need for professional training and supervision.
In order to get the most out of this course, we recommend that you complete all 7 weeks without missing any sessions. If you miss any sessions, we recommend that you go back and re-watch them before moving on to the next week’s session.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems including depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, eating disorders and severe mental illness. Many researchers and therapists now consider CBT to be the gold standard for treating emotional problems.
CBT is based on the idea that how we think (cognition), how we feel (emotion) and how we act (behavior) all interact together. Specifically, our thoughts determine our feelings and our behavior. Therefore, negative and unrealistic thoughts can cause us distress and result in problems. The good news is that we can change these thoughts to improve the way we feel and behave. In CBT, patients learn how to identify distorted thinking patterns and replace them with more realistic ones.
CBT teaches patients that while they can’t control every aspect of the world around them, they can take control of how they interpret and deal with things in their environment – basically changing the way they think about something can change the way they feel about it.
With cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), you will use a set of strategies to change the way you think and act. CBT is becoming increasingly popular as an approach to self-help. It is one of the most empirically supported types of treatments for depression and anxiety, and there is a growing body of research showing that it can be used successfully to treat a variety of disorders, including phobias, OCD, PTSD, eating disorders, substance abuse, and personality disorders.
The purpose of this program is to provide you with an introduction to CBT techniques. You’ll learn how to use CBT in order to identify your thoughts and behaviors that may be causing problems—and how to adapt them to change the way you feel.
It’s been proven to help people with a variety of conditions and can be used in combination with or instead of medicine. It will help you manage your symptoms for the rest of your life.
The goal of CBT is to help you understand and change unhealthy patterns of thinking and behavior. It also helps you learn how to better manage your emotions and reactions.
Research shows that CBT works as well as antidepressants for many forms of depression. In fact, CBT has been shown to be superior in the long run: it does not cause side effects like some antidepressants do, so it doesn’t have any negative impact on your health over time.
When you’re feeling down or anxious, it can be hard to think clearly about what’s going on in your life and how best to respond. People who struggle with depression tend to have negative thoughts more often than those who don’t suffer from this condition. These thoughts affect how they feel emotionally—making them feel sadder—and physically by affecting their energy levels (which might make them tired).
