CBT is an acronym for cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). It is a psychological intervention which is an evidence-based practice for improving mental health and is the most commonly used practice. CBT uses the method of empirical research focusing on the development of person's coping methods whose aim is to solve current problems, change harmful and unhelpful cognitive behaviors and help in regulating emotions. At its origin, the use of cognitive behavioral therapy was restricted to the treatment of depression; but as the years go by, the therapy has been adapted to treat a wider range of mental health issues.
In this book you will learn how CBT is used to treat depression, phobias, anxiety and panic attacks.
