Cognitive behavioral therapy – more commonly referred to as CBT – focuses on the way people think and act in order to help them overcome their emotional and behavioral problems.
Many of the effective CBT practices should seem like everyday good sense. CBT does have some very straightforward and clear principles and is a largely sensible and practical approach to helping people overcome problems. However, human beings don’t always act according to sensible principles, and most people find that simple solutions can be very difficult to put into practice sometimes. CBT can maximize on your common sense and help you to do the healthy things that you may sometimes do naturally and unthinkingly in a deliberate and self-enhancing way on a regular basis.
