Cognitive Behavior Therapy
"Cognitive behavioral therapy is a common type of mental health counseling (psychotherapy). With cognitive behavioral therapy, you work with a mental health counselor (psychotherapist or therapist) in a structured way, attending a limited number of sessions. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking, so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way.
Cognitive behavioral therapy can be a very helpful tool in treating mental disorders or illnesses, such as anxiety or depression. But not everyone who benefits from cognitive behavioral therapy has a mental health condition. It can be an effective tool to help anyone learn how to better manage stressful life situations."
Testing Empathy Agenda Setting Methods
"The goal of TEAM is to produce significant and dramatic changes, and hopefully within today’s therapy session. I have rejected the notion that personal change and healing has to be a slow process, drawn out over months, years, or even decades of treatment.
T.E.A.M. is not just some new brand of psychotherapy–we have too many of those already–but rather represents the effective ingredients in all of therapy. It’s based on process research about how therapy actually works. T.E.A.M. stands for the four crucial ingredients–Testing, Empathy, (Paradoxical) Agenda Setting, and Methods."
