How is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy utilized in an online therapy session?
CBT therapists will assist clients in developing specific goals and identify strategies that will most effectively address these goals and decrease symptoms. CBT is often a manualized, short-term treatment and includes interventions such as relaxation exercises, motivational self-talk, journaling, mood monitoring, and Exposure Response Prevention (ERP). CBT relies heavily on the skills being practiced between sessions, with detailed review of progress and problem solving. This process allows the client to apply the strategies discussed in therapy to real life.
