Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is based on theories of pathological information processing in mental disorders.
CBT is used to treat the following mental health disorders:
- Anxiety Disorder
- Eating Disorders
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders (OCD)
- Sleep Disorders
- Sexual Disorders
Treatment is directed primarily at modifying distorted or maladaptive cognitions and related behavioral dysfunction. Therapeutic interventions are usually focused and problem oriented. Although the use of specific techniques is a major feature of this approach, there can be considerable flexibility and creativity in the clinical application of CBT.
