WHAT IS COGNITIVE-BEHAVIORAL THERAPY?

Within Psychology, cognitive-behavioral therapy is one of the branches most currently used by Psychologists . Its success is due to the fact that it is an experimentally endorsed therapy, a fact that allows psychologists and patients to have firm confidence in its efficacy. The treatments proposed by cognitive-behavioral therapy for each of the emotional problems are based on the results obtained from scientific studies carried out on a multitude of patients.

The philosophy of cognitive behavioral therapy is that our personality is strongly influenced by our experiences. Emotional problems, therefore, arise from bad learning that we have been doing from the moment we are born. The good news is that any learning is susceptible to being modified, so the therapy that the Psychologist will carry out will be aimed at unlearning what has been learned and relearning it in the appropriate way .

During therapy, the psychologist will be like a coach . His job will consist of observing the patient, detecting those aspects of his behavior that need to be improved and practicing with him a series of techniques for this purpose. The role of the patient will be decisive in his improvement process, the more he puts into practice what was seen during the sessions, the sooner he will be able to face his problem by himself; “No matter how good a coach is, if the player does not practice the techniques that he teaches, he will not be able to get the most out of the game.”

The psychological work will be aimed at modifying erroneous or distorted thoughts that the person may be using, always with the ultimate aim of being able to have appropriate behaviors that allow them to overcome their fears and limitations.

HOW DOES A COGNITIVE-BEHAVIORAL PSYCHOLOGIST WORK?

The model on which a Psychologist is based to carry out cognitive-behavioral therapy consists of four phases:

  1. The evaluation phase, in which all relevant information is obtained regarding the problem that is worrying the patient.
  2. The phase of explanation of the hypothesis, in which the patient is carefully explained what emotional problem we are facing, how and when it originated and why it is being maintained today despite the efforts made to try to eliminate it.
  3. The therapy phase, in which the necessary techniques will be put in place to put an end to the problem.
  4. The follow-up phase, in which the sessions will be separated in time as the patient is able to face his problem on his own effectively.
