What is the main goal of cognitive behavioral therapy?

The main goal that cognitive behavioral therapists work towards during cognitive behavioral therapy is changing the way their patients automatically focus on the negative instead of the positive, which contributes to and worsens their emotional state as well as increases moods of depression and their anxiety. The negative mood puts a damper on their mood and can be a negative influence to their behaviors and emotions moving forward.

What does a cognitive behavioral therapist do?

Cognitive behavioral therapy is a form of psychotherapeutic treatment that is offered by cognitive behavioral therapists who help patients learn to identify and change their destructive or disturbing thought patterns that can have a negative influence on their emotions and behaviors.

Cognitive behavioral therapy focuses on changing the negative thoughts these patients have which contribute to and can worsen their emotional difficulties, depression, and anxiety. They end up being a detrimental influence on their mood as well as others.

Due to cognitive behavioral therapy, and the therapists that watch over the patients, these thoughts are then identified, challenged, and replaced with more objective and realistic thoughts than what they were dealing with previously.
