Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a specific form of psychotherapeutic treatment that helps people to identify the relationship between their thoughts, feelings and behaviors. CBT is a collaborative form of therapy where the patient and the therapist work together to explore maladaptive patterns of thinking that may have lead to self-destructive behaviors and emotions. At the Camden Center, each patient will learn specific behavioral techniques to help slow down their automatic negative thought patterns and rationally reframe them to help cope with difficult situations in a productive rather than a destructive manner. At the Camden Center, patients will learn and practice these CBT skills in group therapy and in individual therapy sessions.
