CBT: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is designed to assist participants in identifying and managing maladaptive thoughts that influence behaviors and emotions. The development of these thought patterns serve as an organizational template that can become problematic in many areas of our lives. CBT will encourage participates to research, test and evaluate beliefs and emotional associations. The group will develop a larger understanding of the connection between automatic thoughts and reactions allowing for a choice to adjust and formulate more adaptive experiences.
CBT Skills Group
At our practice, groups meet weekly in either the daytime or evenings. Group skills training provides an opportunity to learn and practice CBT skills in a collaborative setting. Sessions will consist of the introduction of a new skill or continued reinforcement of a skill previously taught as well as review of homework assignments from the previous meeting. Throughout the sessions, there will be opportunities to explore and share personal reactions and experiences.
