Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

eGPS offers "guided self-help treatment", which is based on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy as principles. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; CBT, is a treatment having strong clinical evidence-base to deal with different mood problems, such as depression (Beck, 1967), panic disorder (Clark, 1986),social anxiety disorder(Clark & Wells, 1995) and obsessive-compulsive disorder(Salkovskis, 1985).

 

Cognitive behavioral therapy mainly surround 3 main categories, including automatic response, behavior and cognition. Regardless it is depressive, angry or worried emotions, they are affecting our automatic response, behavior and cognition. Meanwhile, our automatic response, behavior and cognition are affecting each other, forming a vicious cycle, to continue the negative mood, forming a difficulty in self-healing in mood problems. Cognitive behavioral therapy mainly changing behavior or cognition, for example, planning proactive healthy ways to face emotions, having less avoidance, or unhelpful thinking patterns, to break the maintenance of the vicious cycle.
