Cognitive behaviour therapy is a focused approach that is based on the concept that cognitions influence feelings and behaviours, and that subsequent behaviours and emotions can influence cognitions. The therapist helps individuals identify unhelpful thoughts, emotions and behaviours. CBT has two aspects: behaviour therapy and cognitive therapy. Behaviour therapy is based on the theory that behaviour is learned and therefore can be changed. Examples of behavioural techniques include exposure, activity scheduling, relaxation, and behaviour modification. Cognitive therapy is based on the theory that distressing emotions and maladaptive behaviours are the results of faulty patterns of thinking. Therefore, therapeutic interventions, such as cognitive restructuring and self-instructional training are aimed at replacing such dysfunctional thoughts with more helpful cognitions, which leads to an alleviation of problem thoughts, emotions and behaviour. Skills training, for example, stress management, social skills training, parent training, and anger management) is another important component of CBT.
