What is cognitive-behavioral therapy?

• It’s focused on modifying thoughts, conducts, emotions, and physiological responses that are causing any discomfort.

• One of its main goals is to modify certain conduct and thinking patterns, interpret the surroundings in a resilient way and improve the life quality of the patient.

• Uses different technics and procedures such as the psycho-education, cognitive restructuring, social skills training and problem-solving.

• These are short interventions with limited time. The goal is to transfer several tools to the patient so she or he can manage and control independently their situations without depending on the therapeutic process.
