CBT stands for Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, which is considered by many mental health professionals to be the most effective form of talk therapy treatment for depression and anxiety. Numerous studies have documented that CBT is effective for treating depression and anxiety, and some studies have shown that CBT may even be as effective as medication for treating depression and anxiety.
Many people who suffer from depression and/or anxiety tend to be very critical of themselves or others. CBT helps people recognize ways their negative thinking contributes to their symptoms. Learning to think more positively takes practice, but often results in increased feelings of well-being. Another important aspect of CBT is finding behaviors that help improve your mood. CBT is all about learning to change your thoughts (Cognitions) and activities (Behaviors) to achieve relief from symptoms of depression and anxiety.
