What Is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy?
Cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, enables you to manage your fears by helping you gradually change the way you think. It’s based on the interconnectedness of thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and behaviors.
It may take several CBT sessions to counteract this thought pattern. In order to accomplish this, the therapist can help you overcome your fear with incremental steps.
Techniques commonly used in cognitive-behavioral therapy draw from the schools of behaviorism and learning theory as well as the school of cognitive theory.
