Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind peoples difficulties, and so change the way they feel. It is used to help treat a wide range of issues in a persons life, from sleeping difficulties or relationship problems, to drug and alcohol abuse or anxiety and depression.
Motivational interviewing is used in therapy to assist clients in making decisions about moving forward with the process of treatment and recovery. Meant to be more of a “hands-off” approach, the therapist is more likely to listen than to offer suggestions. The idea behind motivational interviewing is that whatever decision a person makes about their life, they are going to be more invested in their choice if they are making it solely on their own reasoning and in their own time.
The goal of DBT therapy is to transform negative thinking patterns and destructive behaviors into positive outcomes using a variety of problem solving and acceptance-based techniques within a framework of dialectical methods. By freeing individuals from their negative thought processes and helping them to establish mindfulness practices and emotional regulation, they will be better prepared to manage any challenging hardships that lay ahead.
Narrative therapy is a method of therapy that separates a person from their problem. It encourages people to rely on their own skills to minimize problems that exist in their lives.
