Cognitive Behavioral Interventions
Thoughts, feelings and behaviors all interact to either help you feel healthy and happy, or depressed and miserable. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy was created to help you basically alter one aspect of that triad. When you are having more positive, happy or empowered thoughts, it generally benefits your mood and how you feel physically.
Cognitions are literally your thoughts. By changing the way you think about something, you can change your emotional and physical reactions to it as well. There are several different cognitive approaches that use cognitive behavioral techniques: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Emotion Efficacy Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. This section pulls the most helpful tools from each one in order to help you build a strong foundation of skills to improve your thoughts and let go of unnecessary stress.
