Connecting Thoughts, Behaviors, and Feelings.

What Is CBT?

Cognitive behavioral therapy often referred to as CBT, is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on making connections between thoughts, behavior, and feelings. Therapists who use CBT help teens identify and change harmful thoughts and behaviors.

CBT is often used and especially effective with teens. It is effective in treating a wide range of issues including eating disorders, substance abuse, anxiety, and depression.

CBT helps teens learn how to interpret their environment differently. Compared to other therapeutic approaches, CBT can produce results very quickly. Sometimes, only a handful of sessions are needed. It is very problem-focused which means it deals with issues in the present, sessions focus on helping the teen with problems they are facing now.

CBT For Teens

Teens often develop distorted core beliefs about themselves. CBT helps confront and modify those distortions. Teens can benefit from the self-reflective aspects of CBT. They get to the heart of the issues they are facing, and offer a range of practical, positive behavioral strategies to promote positive change. CBT therapists teach kids to see how their behavior is either helping them or hurting them. Then they allow them to make choices to modify those behaviors.


This type of therapy can provide benefits such as:

  • Improve communication with others
  • Reduce fears and phobias
  • Interrupt thoughts that lead to addictive or other self-destructive behaviors
  • Improve self-esteem
  • Identify positive responses to stress
  • Change negative thought patterns
