Video: What Is CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)?

Many of us have heard the term CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, but there can be some confusion as to its meaning, or the type of therapy it refers to. This short video (3:34 length) does an excellent job explaining how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours are all intimately connected to form our more general patterns of living. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy aims to consciously interrupt and alter one of those things - usually the thought or behaviour - in order to affect the feeling, and thus, the greater patterns in life. As mentioned in the video, CBT isn't right for everyone, but for almost everyone it can be helpful. Even in the most complex mental health scenarios, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can be an effective solution in tackling one's immediate or present concerns, before delving deeper into the more complex issues. Take a quick peek of the video below for two examples of how the theory behind CBT works in real life scenarios, and for more information on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in general.
