Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Dr. Charles Sophy discusses the benefits of cognitive behavioral therapy. He defines Cognitive Behavioral therapy as a behavioral interventionist therapy method. CBT teaches patients that how they feel is often a result of their thinking processes. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy therefore enables the patient to change how they think and so change how they feel.

Dr. Sophy describes the different conditions that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can be effectively used to treat such as Attention Deficit Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety and depression amongst others. There are two key Drawbacks Dr. Sophy identifies with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; the therapy takes time for results to show, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy also requires a certain level of intellect for it to work.
