I agree with your sentiments on CBT. CBT helps treat depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol, and
drug abuse issues, marital issues, eating disorders, and severe mental disease. CBT improves
functionality and quality of life in a significant way. CBT is as successful as, if not more
effective, in numerous trials as other forms of psychological therapy or psychiatric drugs (Tolin
et al., 2019).
CBT focuses on assisting individuals in becoming their therapists. Patients/clients are assisted in
developing coping skills through exercises and assignments outside of therapy sessions, allowing
them to change their thinking, disturbing emotions, and behavior (Heenan et al., 2020).
CBT therapists focus on the person's current situation rather than the events that led to their
problems. Although some information about one's past is required, the focus is generally on
moving forward in time to develop more effective coping mechanisms (Janse et al., 2019).
