This is a part of the Hot Topic podcast series from the Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center on TBI and Depression. Dr. Jesse Fann discusses How Does Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy is a very commonly used therapy that really tries to do three things. It tries to get people back doing the things that they want to do. So, activating them to get back into their daily lives, things that they enjoy. It also helps people to problem-solve things that are making them worried, things that are affecting their lives negatively.

And then it helps them adjust their thinking so that they can better think about and adapt to the things that are happening to them and also adjust the way they behave and think about their problems, if you will, in a way that is not as negative and more, potentially more positive and more productive.
