    What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on examining the relationships between thoughts, feelings and behaviors. CBT is a short-term, goal-oriented form of therapy that helps people identify negative patterns in their thinking and behavior, challenge them with more realistic and helpful thoughts, and learn healthier coping strategies to better manage difficult situations. By changing unhelpful and distorted thinking patterns, people are able to gain control over their emotions and behavior, and ultimately improve their quality of life. CBT is often used to treat depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, substance abuse, phobias or other mental health issues. It is also used as an adjunct to medication for those dealing with severe mental illness. 

    How Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Work

    CBT works by helping clients understand their beliefs and how they influence their behavior. This commonly involves identifying negative thought patterns that may be causing distress and replacing them with more positive and realistic ones. CBT also typically includes skills training, such as practicing relaxation techniques or problem-solving strategies to help the patient manage stressors when they arise. Through this process, clients gain insight into themselves and learn how to better manage their thoughts, feelings and behaviors. In addition, CBT can also help individuals develop a greater sense of self-awareness as well as interpersonal skills such as empathy for others. Ultimately, the goal of this type of therapy is to create lasting changes in clients’ lives that will lead to improved mental health and wellbeing.

    Results of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

    Benchmark Transitions uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a proven and effective treatment for a range of mental health struggles. CBT helps people recognize, grasp, and correct unhealthy thought patterns that can contribute to emotional distress and maladaptive behavior. Studies indicate that CBT is an effective therapy for depression, anxiety, phobias, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, and eating disorders.
    Comparative studies show that CBT outperformed other forms of psychotherapy and no treatment at all in producing relief from symptoms. On average, 50-70% of CBT participants saw a significant reduction in symptoms post-treatment compared to 15-20% who received no treatment. CBT has also demonstrated an ability to reduce the need for medication in those being treated for mood disorders such as depression and anxiety.
    At Benchmark Transitions, we use CBT to help individuals improve their mental health. We celebrate its impressive success rates and its potential for long-term recovery.
