Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy which analyzes the relationship between behavior, thoughts, and feelings. The underlying principle of CBT is that it helps the patients to reframe and develop more positive and better response. Mental disorders result from the manner in which people interpret stressful conditions and stimuli and their response mechanism. This therapy aims at improving the interpretation of the stressful conditions and helping to frame positive response mechanisms. Under this therapy, the therapist and the patient work actively towards treating the mental disorder. This therapy is becoming popular and is being commonly used to treat ailments and disorders like anxiety, depression, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder etc.
