Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Cognitive behavior theory (CBT) is based on the idea that how we think (cognition), how we feel (emotion) and how we act (behavior) all interact together.
Our thoughts determine our feelings and our behavior. Those thought patterns that CBT addresses are social anxiety disorders, sense of self-worth and self-defeating thinking.
How CBT Would solve some of these Thoughts.
a. It identifies those irrational or maladaptive thoughts that lead to negative emotion and identify what it is about them that is irrational or just not helpful; this is done in an effort to reject the distorted thoughts and replace them with more realistic alternative thoughts.
b.With patience and a good therapist, however, cognitive therapy can be a valuable tool in recovery.
c.CBT helps you learn to identify, challenge, and change distorted beliefs and negative, irrational thoughts to ones that are more empowering, realistic, and positive.
d.It teaches you healthy coping skills and behaviors. When you change the way you think about yourself, it changes the way you react to and perceive the world around you.
