What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?
It is a widely-used treatment approach that has a high rate of success in treating many psychological issues. It encompasses a broad category of evidence-based treatments that involve the interplay between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
Does CBT work…?
Yes. Since its development in the 1960s, CBT has been heavily researched and has been demonstrated to be very effective in treating a vast array of mental health issues (including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, personality disorders, and relationship problems).
How does VPG use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
We utilize traditional frameworks at Vivid Psychology Group, but we take it a few steps further with our use of specialized approaches. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) are highly specialized forms of CBT and require additional training to incorporate in therapy treatments.
All clinicians at VPG are trained in the synthesis of CBT, ACT, and ERP to provide highly specialized and adaptable treatment options.
