Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Humans are complex, and as treatment progresses, clients often have concerns that DBT may not directly address. When necessary, we map other evidence-based interventions onto a client's care. The primary modality used across conditions is CBT, which was originally developed for depression, and it targets an individual's emotions by considering accompanying thoughts and behaviors. For example, a person who thinks "I'm a loser" could feel sad and act a bit lethargic and mopey. CBT would target the sadness by working to change the thoughts and behavior that support the sadness. Most mood and anxiety concerns can be positively impacted by CBT, with slight modifications for each concern. For example, Prolonged Exposure is a CBT approach designed specifically for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. At The Ebright Foundation, we work to follow the latest research findings by taking a thorough account of your concerns and matching the treatment modality that best fits your profile.
