Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: CBT is a blended approach consisting of both cognitive and behavioral theories. This means that the therapist identifies the underlying issues with the participation of the client as part of a deeper understanding of how the brain works. Once patterns are identified, skills are presented during sessions that the patient practices between sessions, effectively resetting or overwriting undesirable anxiety responses with positive life skills and approaches.

Behavior homework serves to render the new ideas discussed in therapy into patterns that will become nearly automatic over time. Because the patient is consciously involved in making the therapy a success, this approach offers a sense of personal empowerment that may also contribute to positive outcomes.
