Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Center in Hollywood, FL

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a structured, evidence-based type of psychotherapy used to manage and treat a variety of mental health disorders. During CBT, you work with a therapist to understand how your thoughts affect your actions. 

You’ll become more aware of negative or inaccurate thoughts and adopt healthier patterns so you can respond to difficult situations more effectively. This type of therapy will help you feel calmer and better equipped to handle any challenges that life throws your way.

How CBT Works

CBT is usually a short-term treatment that occurs over several sessions. Your therapist will customize your sessions based on your unique condition and goals. Typically, however, they’ll begin by discussing your challenges, symptoms, and concerns. 

Then, they’ll ask you questions related to your past, troubling behaviors, fears, and phobias. Through these questions, you’ll be able to recognize problematic thoughts and behaviors and learn how to change them. 

Your therapist may also encourage you to practice techniques such as journaling, behavioral experiments, pleasant activity scheduling, and mindfulness. The primary goal of CBT will be to help you adopt positive thoughts and behaviors that you can apply to difficult situations in the future.

CBT for Mental Health Treatment

CBT is often used as a popular treatment for people experiencing mental health conditions that do not require medication. Through sessions with a licensed therapist, an individual can explore negative behavioral patterns that impact their quality of life and their relationships with others and develop healthier coping and communication skills. This can often involve examining a person’s past traumatic experiences that influence their current personal narratives to help establish effective, positive change.

CBT for Substance Abuse Treatment

CBT may be employed by professional therapists to help people with substance abuse disorders. These treatments involve a series of sessions in which a therapist will work with a client to identify thought patterns and behaviors that influence addictive behaviors to help the individual develop more effective coping mechanisms. This type of therapy can help to increase compliance with aftercare treatment programs and decrease the impact of triggers like stress, anxiety, and depression which can contribute significantly to relapse.

CBT is considered a low-risk and/or safe type of mental health therapy in general. It isn’t always appropriate as a stand-alone treatment for some conditions, however. Medication or other forms of therapy might be used in conjunction with CBT to treat certain mental health issues in some situations.

Benefits of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT can provide you with a support network you can turn to when times get tough. It may teach you how to turn negative thoughts into positive ones that improve the way you handle difficult situations.  Some specific benefits include:

Develop Healthier Coping Skills

CBT teaches people how to use coping methods that are healthy rather than merely distracting themselves from their problems. These skills frequently entail replacing harmful behaviors with more successful alternatives, which can lead to a happier and healthier existence.

Improve Communication with Others

When people practice CBT, they learn how to express themselves in a way that is more effective when communicating with others. This can improve relationships at home and work as well as school or social settings where the individual may be challenged by personal interactions where emotional triggers may present themselves.

Address Traumatic Experiences

CBT may enable individuals to recognize that their current mental health or substance abuse problems are often linked to prior trauma. It can aid in the reduction of flashbacks and anxiety they might cause in future situations by allowing people to express and release negative emotions surrounding these events.

Improve Self Esteem

Low self-esteem can influence self-perception and contribute to both mental health and substance abuse issues. By challenging one’s own narratives about their life, CBT can help encourage higher self-esteem which can promote healthier coping behaviors and improve interpersonal relationships.

Prevent Relapse

People who participate in CBT are frequently better able to resist urges that contribute to relapse. CBT helps people recognize their personal triggers in the present moment and teaches them how to manage these negative thoughts and reactions more effectively. This can help a person prevent relapsing into maladaptive behavior patterns and/or re-engaging in substance abuse.
