Cognitive behavioral therapy (or CBT) is a short-term,
action-focused form of psychotherapy. CBT aims to address specific
problems utilizing techniques that have been supported by research
findings. The aim of CBT work is to improve your feelings/mood by
making changes in the way you think about a situation, the
way you behave, and/or the way you interpret and respond to your
emotions. Unlike other forms of psychotherapy, CBT work
usually does not focus on discovering the origin of a problem or
gaining insight into a problem. Rather, CBT focuses on how an
existing problem(s) can best be solved.
