Developed by Aaron Beck

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of mental health disorders, such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

How it works:

CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are all interconnected, and that negative patterns of thinking can lead to negative emotions and behaviors. CBT focuses on helping people identify and change these negative patterns of thinking, which can then lead to improvements in mood and behavior.
