Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy at Banyan Chicago
(CBT) is the most widely used treatment for mental disorders. This evidence-based practice is guided by research and focuses on coping strategies. This type of behavioral therapy targets problem solving with an emphasis on changing unhealthy patterns in behaviors and actions. CBT was originally created to treat just depression, but is now commonly used for several mental health conditions. Co-occurring Disorder refers to when a patient is being treated for a substance use disorder and a mental health disorder concurrently, and in these circumstances CBT may be one of the main forms of therapy.
At Banyan Chicago, we offer cognitive behavioral therapy for anyone who suffers from mental health disorders such as depression, PTSD, or an eating disorder. Our effective therapy sessions help all our clients learn how to better manage stressful life situations that arise and how to properly cope with their disorder. Our main goal during this treatment is to change the unhealthy patterns of thinking or behavior for someone with a mental health disorder.
During CBT sessions at Banyan Chicago, the client and therapist are actively working together to understand the issues behind a health condition and develop effective strategies for tackling them. Our CBT programs allow all individuals to gain a set of new cognitive and behavioral principles that they can apply in all life settings moving forward. This method of therapy is a combination of psychotherapy and behavioral therapy. Our very own psychotherapists who practice CBT customize each therapy session to the specific needs of each client. We understand that all therapy practices should be designed strategically, which is why we don’t offer just one uniform session.
There is a focus area centered around negative thoughts during CBT therapy and if these thoughts are too negative, it can block people from seeing reality. People tend to hold on to the same thoughts and fail to expand their horizons and learn something new. This vicious cycle can apply to many mental health conditions as well as substance abuse disorders. The way that individuals perceive a situation is more closely related to their reaction than the situation itself.
At Banyan Chicago, we understand the great impacts CBT can have on self-improvement during the recovery process, and our therapy sessions really hone-in on teaching clients the necessary skills to modify dysfunctional thinking and behavior. Our structured meetings are always directed at solving current problems, and each session is tailored to the individual’s specific needs. CBT is the answer to changing unhealthy behaviors that constantly effect your life decisions.
