Definition: Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is a technique that can be used to help people better understand the thoughts and feelings that lead to potentially problematic behaviors. CBT has a range of uses, but it can be particularly effective when treating phobias, anxiety, additions, and depression.
One of the most appealing things about cognitive behavior therapy is that it is usually considered a short-term option that focuses on a very specific set of behaviors. Learn more about cognitive behavior therapy.
