Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a psycho-social intervention that is the most widely used evidence based practice for improving mental health. CBT focuses on the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems and changing unhelpful patterns in cognitions (e.g. thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes), behaviors, and emotional regulation. It is designed to treat a variation of mental disorders including anxiety, depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), stress, chronic pain, delayed recovery, etc.. Many payers today are acknowledging this evidence based practice to aid in an injured worker’s recovery and/or return to work.
Cognitive Behavioral Cycle
About this cycle. The situations we encounter evoke thoughts and our thought determine how we feel (emotions). Our emotions, in turn affect our behavior and how we react impacts our situation. That said, if we understand what the right behavior is that will lead to improved situations and the wrong behaviors will make situations worse.
