Do you ever think you have more anxiety than other people? Our group is an introduction to the basic concepts and skills of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy or CBT. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a short-term, evidence-based treatment for many problems, including anxiety. It is based on the principle that cognitions (thoughts), behaviors (actions/choices) and emotions (feelings) all affect each other. Being aware of and changing how we act, think, and respond to emotions can help us keep anxiety from controlling our lives. In this group you will find out why and learn how to use CBT skills to fight your anxiety over the long term. Each session will cover various CBT skills. This group is not meant to fix your anxiety completely. While there is no 100% guarantee that CBT will work for you, it is likely that with practice and hard work you will receive benefit from these techniques. We want to give you a chance to try out some of these techniques and understand your anxiety better. When you get done with this group you may want to continue with group or individual CBT treatment here or with a therapist in the community.
