Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
If You Change Nothing, Nothing Will Change -
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is defined as a psychosocial intervention that is the most widely used evidence-based practice for treating mental disorders. Guided by empirical research, CBT focuses on the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems and changing unhelpful patterns in cognitions (thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes), behaviors, and emotional regulation. All worksheets have been made available by Therapist Aid.
"It is a plastic, living organ that can actually change its own structure and function, even into old age. Arguably the most important breakthrough in neuroscience since scientists first sketched out the brain’s basic anatomy, this revolutionary discovery, called neuroplasticity, promises to overthrow the centuries-old notion that the brain is fixed and unchanging. The brain is not, as was thought, like a machine, or “hardwired” like a computer. Neuroplasticity not only gives hope to those with mental limitations, or what was thought to be incurable brain damage, but expands our understanding of the healthy brain and the resilience of human nature." -Norman Doidge, MD (Link to website with book and documentary information).
