Cognitive Behavioral Techniques for Mental Illness Treatment
Cognitive Behavioral Techniques for Mental Illness Treatment

Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is an evidence-based therapy widely used to treat people with addiction and other mental health conditions. CBT is a talk therapy that is structured so as to engage patients in achieving recovery independently. Therapist and patient talk extensively over a set number of sessions with the objective of identifying the root causes of the negative behaviors of mental illnesses like addiction, PTSD and panic disorder.

Using Cognitive Behavioral Techniques in Mental Health Treatment

CBT has been shown to be an effective tool in treating mental health conditions although not everyone benefiting from the therapy necessarily has a mental illness. CBT has become very popular in recent years with more people using the therapy to help them manage stressful lives. Basically, CBT identifies the negative thought processes that generally drive mental health conditions and seeks to change them.

CBT is a very useful tool for helping people deal with emotional challenges in healthier ways. For example, it may help:

  • Reduce or eliminate the symptoms of mental illness
  • Prevent relapse of symptoms
  • Provide an alternative route to medications
  • As a coping mechanism for stressful situations
  • Resolve relationship issues and improve communication
  • Overcoming grief or loss
  • Manage symptoms of a chronic physical condition

Mental illnesses are almost always long-term health conditions that require support and treatment for many years, sometimes a lifetime. CBT is a therapy that can provide people with this support when they need it and they can choose to reduce or increase the frequency of sessions as they require.
