What Will Treatment Be Like?
In Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Depression, a trained therapist will help you learn new thinking skills to clear up the dark and foggy lenses that are part of depression. Your therapist will also help you figure out and do more activities that make you feel good about yourself and about life.
At the start of treatment, you’ll create treatment goals that are specific to you. Then, you and your therapist will work together as a team to help you achieve your goals. Throughout treatment, your therapist will ask you for feedback to make sure things are headed in the right direction. Treatment lasts about 12-16 sessions, though you can start with just a few sessions to try it out.
