In this video, Dr. Amelia Aldao, a clinical psychologist and researcher who specializes in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), discusses the principles of CBT, and the skills that participation in CBT can help develop. The most important skill which CBT teaches people is reframing the situations they are experiencing through different lenses, so the patient can potentially develop a more positive frame of reference.
Additionally, exposure to anxiety sources under the care of a trained professional can help individuals to overcome those anxieties. Dr. Aldao also emphasises the importance of practicing the skills learned in CBT as much as possible, so those skills become habits.
