Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the few forms of psychotherapy that has been scientifically tested and found to be effective in hundreds of clinical trials for many different disorders. In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, cognitive therapy is usually more focused on the present, more time-limited, and more problem-solving oriented. In addition, clients learn specific skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. These skills involve identifying distorted thinking, modifying beliefs, relating to others in different ways, and changing behaviors.
(Beck Institude for Cognitive Therapy)
Family therapy is based on the fundamental assumption that adaptive family interactions can play a pivotal role in protecting children from negative influences, and that maladaptive family interactions can contribute to the evolution of behavior problems and consequently is a primary target for intervention. The goal of family therapy is to identify family dynamics that are causing a problem within the family system, and implementing changes that would result in healthier interactions.
