Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT)

CBT is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on helping you identify how your understanding or interpretation of a situation affects behaviors. A key feature of CBT includes addressing unhelpful thinking patterns in order to improve mood and coping skills. 


A trauma informed approach includes emphasizing safety, developing healthy connections, and managing emotions. Trauma focused cognitive behavior therapy (TF-CBT) draws from the cognitive and narrative models in order to address symptoms of PTSD and other related traumatic events through gradual exposure to traumatic memories.
