CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)
5:30 – 7:00 p.m.
- It’s a scientifically tested form of psychotherapy that emphasizes solving problems and initiating behavioral changes.
- The premise of CBT is that the way we perceive situations influences how we feel emotionally. That’s why when we are in distress, our perspective can sometimes be inaccurate and our thoughts may be unrealistic.
- As a group member, you will learn skills that can help you identify unhelpful thoughts, and modify beliefs, relate better to others, and change behaviors.
- CBT proposes that when we learn to evaluate our thinking in a more realistic and adaptive way, we experience improvement in our emotional state and behavior.
