How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Updated: Jul 10, 2018

Cognitive behavioral therapy teaches us simple steps towards solving complex problems. CBT helps us recognize that we have grown accustomed to negative thinking patterns. It also teaches motivated people to control unmanageable emotions and destructive behaviors by intervening on the thought level. Repeatedly modifying automatic negative thoughts into more helpful ones is one of the best ways to shift persepctive on life problems and crisis that are not under our control.

The Thomas Theorem dated from 1928 "states that if men define situations as real, they are real in their consequences. In other words, the interpretation of a situation causes the action. This interpretation is not objective."

Sound familiar? A client said to me the other day, "Dr. Mor....I don't mean to be skeptical but changing the way I think....trying to train my brain to incorporate more positive thinking just sounds too simple. My anxiety and depression is much deeper than that and I doubt it can be solved with simple thinking exercises."

This reaction is not unusual and certainly makes a valid point. To find out how my response can help you start feeling better and getting back to life, visit me at
