“Awareness is the first step in rewriting old stories.”
— Arthur P. Ciaramicoli (The Stress Solution: Using Empathy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to Reduce Anxiety and Develop Resilience)
Cognitive behavioral therapy seeks to identify illogical thought patterns and learned patterns of unhelpful behavior. It encourages learning to recognize one’s problematic distortions in thinking, and then to re-evaluate them in light of reality. It also seeks to gain a better understanding of our behaviors and the motivations behind them. With this awareness, the patient begins to learn problem-solving skills to create an empowering perspective around difficult situations and develop a greater sense of confidence in one’s own abilities and decision making.
