Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based treatment model designed to assist adolescents, and their families in overcoming the negative effects of a traumatic experience.
A small percentage of people suffer from intense emotional or physical distress, called acute stress disorder, which typically occurs in the first month following a traumatic event. You may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder if the problems remain or become worse and if the problems go beyond 3 months.
Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy are two types of treatment that are based firmly on research findings. These therapies aid people in achieving specific changes or goals.
Changes or goals might involve:
A way of acting
A way of feeling
A way of thinking
A way of dealing with physical or medical problems
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has many benefits, especially if you don’t want to spend years in therapy or counseling. It addresses behaviors and thought patterns and works in the present time rather than analyzing the past. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is not about diving into what you or your parents did when you were a child. Rather, it aims to focus on the present issues at hand.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy teaches through self-awareness, moderating your thinking, and dealing rationally with behaviors and thought processes. The average length of a CBT relationship between client and therapist is 16 sessions. This cuts down on both time and money. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is all about giving you concrete tools to navigate your emotions, control your thinking, and thus eliminate unwanted behaviors.
