What is your go-to approach for cognitive behavioral therapy?

My go-to approach for helping people in cognitive behavioral therapy is primarily through a comprehensive (yet intuitive) process known as thought replacement. I prefer CBT because it is considered to be the gold standard of therapeutic counseling methods.

My go-to approach for helping people in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is cognitive restructuring. I prefer this approach because it empowers individuals to challenge and change their unhelpful thought patterns, leading to lasting improvements in their emotions and behaviors.

What tools do you teach in cognitive behavioral therapy?

I teach the following tools in cognitive behavioral therapy:

  • Identifying negative thoughts: It is important to learn what thoughts, feelings, and situations are contributing to maladaptive behaviors.
  • Practicing new skills: In cognitive behavioral therapy, people are often taught new skills that can be used in real-world situations.
  • Goal-setting: Goal setting can be an important step in recovery from mental illness, helping you to make changes to improve your health and life.
  • Problem-solving: Learning problem-solving skills during cognitive behavioral therapy can help you learn how to identify and solve problems that may arise from life stressors, both big and small.
  • Self-monitoring: Also known as diary work, self-monitoring is an important cognitive behavioral therapy technique. It involves tracking behaviors, symptoms, or experiences over time and sharing them with your therapist.

I teach the following tools in CBT:

  • Thought records: These are structured forms used to help clients identify, challenge, and reframe unhelpful thoughts.
  • Behavioral activation: This focuses on increasing engagement in meaningful and rewarding activities to alleviate symptoms of depression or anxiety.
  • Cognitive restructuring: This helps clients challenge and reframe distorted or irrational thoughts that contribute to negative emotions and behaviors.
  • Relaxation techniques: Techniques such as deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, or mindfulness meditation are taught to reduce physiological arousal.
  • Problem-solving skills: This training helps clients develop systematic approaches to identifying and resolving problems.
  • Assertiveness training: This teaches clients to communicate their needs, preferences, and boundaries effectively.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in cognitive behavioral therapy?

I know a client is making meaningful progress in cognitive behavioral therapy when the client has made significant improvements in functioning and quality of life.

I know a client is making meaningful progress in CBT when they:

  • Demonstrate increased awareness of their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
  • Actively engage in applying CBT techniques, exhibit positive behavioral changes.
  • Experience a reduction in symptoms, improve in various areas of functioning, increase in self-reflection and insightmaintain gains over time.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement cognitive behavioral therapy?

Clients can supplement their time in cognitive behavioral therapy by completing homework assignments, practicing mindfulness and meditation exercises, using cognitive restructuring techniques, implementing mood tracking and journaling, and finding educational resources.

Clients can supplement their time in CBT with the following activities:

  • Practicing mindfulness meditation.
  • Journaling to track thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
  • Reading self-help books or articles on topics related to CBT, mindfulness, or personal growth.
  • Engaging in relaxation exercises like deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, or guided imagery.
  • Participating in support groups or online communities focused on mental health.
  • Setting personal goals related to career, relationships, hobbies, or self-improvement.
  • Engaging in enjoyable activities to maintain balance and perspective.
  • Practicing assertiveness skills in real-life situations.
  • Seeking social support from friends, family, or trusted individuals.

What should someone do to prepare for starting cognitive behavioral therapy?

To prepare for their first cognitive behavioral therapy session, an individual can write down any worrisome thoughts they're experiencing or situations that trigger symptoms they want to address.

To prepare for their first CBT session, an individual can:

  • Reflect on goals and expectations for therapy.
  • Gather any relevant information or documents that may be helpful for the therapist.
  • Identify specific problem areas or patterns they want to address.
  • Be open and honest to build a trusting therapeutic relationship.
  • Manage expectations about the therapy process.
  • Prepare questions about the therapy process or the therapist's approach.
  • Take care of practical matters like scheduling appointments or arranging transportation.

Starting Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

What is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)?

At Thriveworks, Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a widely recognized and evidence-based form of psychotherapy or talk therapy. It focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns, emotions, and behaviors that can contribute to various mental health issues or challenges that people are struggling with.

What does a cognitive behavioral therapist do?

Cognitive behavioral therapists specialize in Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and can help you to identify and comprehend your thought patterns, which often encompass automatic negative thoughts, cognitive distortions, and self-defeating beliefs. Once these negative thought patterns are pinpointed, cognitive behavioral therapists aim to challenge and replace them with the objective of fostering more constructive and logical thinking. In addition, these therapists place significant emphasis on implementing positive behavioral changes based on the newly established, healthier thought patterns.

What is CBT best for?

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is particularly effective for addressing conditions like anxiety disorders, depression, phobias, and obsessive-compulsive disorders. It focuses on identifying and modifying negative thought patterns and behaviors, making it well-suited for issues related to distorted thinking and emotional regulation.

How much does a CBT session cost?

At Thriveworks, we take most major forms of insurance, meaning many of our clients only pay a small $0-$50 co-pay. However, we have self-pay options, too. For those out-of-network, our therapy and psychiatry services are around $200, depending on the service and location.

What is the success rate of CBT?

The success rate of CBT varies depending on the intentions of the client and their condition(s).

What\'s better: CBT or DBT?

The selection between cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is based on an individual’s unique needs and challenges. CBT is commonly chosen for addressing conditions such as anxiety and depression, whereas DBT is especially beneficial for individuals dealing with borderline personality disorder, emotional regulation issues, and difficulties in interpersonal relationships.

Is CBT conducted in person or online?

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with our Thriveworks therapists in Grand Prairie, TX is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How many sessions is CBT?

Generally, CBT is considered a short-term therapy, typically lasting for about 12 to 20 weekly sessions. In some cases, it might extend to around 16 to 20 sessions for more complex issues.
