Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a short-term talk therapy that focuses on helping us understand the relationship between our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behaviors. CBT strategies and skills have been developed to help us recognize how we process our thoughts and feelings, reprogram unhealthy or non-beneficial mental habits, and make more conscious choices in how we react to challenging circumstances and stimuli. While CBT is often used to treat depression and anxiety, it can also be effective for chronic pain and other neurological disorders.
The ABC model of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) explains why you think the things you think, why you feel the way you feel, and why you do the things you do. When we learn to use the ABC model, we can begin to intervene and take control of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
