How much do our thoughts affect our actions? That's a question cognitive behavioral therapists ask often. During a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) session, they look for connections between what we think and how we act.
Consider a student who loves basketball but believes he's bad at it. He tells himself he'll miss his shots and cost his team the game each day. As try outs draw near, he feels more and more nervous. This results in trouble sleeping and stomach aches. Ultimately, he rests at home instead of going to try outs.
In this example, a cognitive behavioral therapist might look at how the student's thoughts led to this outcome and whether positive thinking could lead to better outcomes in the future.
Is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Effective?
