Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, focuses on the present rather that the past (like behaviorism) but also assumes that people interact with the world with more than simple, automatic reactions to external stimuli. People observe the world on those observations or cognitions, and then decide how to respond (Ranchman & Hodgson, 1980). As a form of cognitive therapy, CBT also assumes that disorder comes form illogical, irrational cognitions and that changing the thinking patterns to more rational, logical ones will relieve the symptoms of the disorder, making it an action therapy. Cognitive-behavioral therapists may also use any of the tools that behavioral therapists employ to help clients alter their actions
