Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a well-known and effective type of mental health treatment. Cognitive behavioral theory believes that psychological symptoms are the result of the interaction between thoughts, behaviors, and feelings. In CBT, the therapist and client work as partners in a structured manner. The goal is for the client to become aware of inaccurate and negative ways of thinking and behaving so that s/he can view challenging situations in a clearer manner and respond to them more effectively. While CBT can be very useful in treating psychological disorders, such as anxiety and depression, it can also be highly effective in helping any individual learn how to better manage stressful life situations. Some of the strategies commonly used in this therapy include stress management, breathing retraining, thought stopping, and mindfulness training.
