Does CBT delve in the past?

Hey everyone,

In today’s post on Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), I’d like to cover the myth that CBT does not delve into the person’s past!

Again, this is not true as looking into the past helps to understand the social and psychological learning history of the person, and to discover how it continuously shapes and influences them in the present. The therapist then helps them modify their deep-seated unhelpful beliefs by taking action in the present to experience the effects of changing their thinking and behaviour.

Look out for the next post then! And feel free to share any questions that you might have about CBT too.
