Subject Definitions

Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) describes a number of therapies that all have a similar approach to solving problems - these can range from sleeping difficulties or relationship problems to drug and alcohol abuse or anxiety and depression. CBT works by changing people's attitudes and their behaviour. The therapies focus on the thoughts images beliefs and attitudes that we hold (our cognitive processes) and how this relates to the way we behave as a way of dealing with emotional problems.
