Does CBT tackle the unconscious?

Hey everyone,

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

Once again, this is not true as CBT increases awareness of subconscious automatic thoughts and beliefs through reflection and guided discovery. As behaviours (e.g., fear response or avoidance) may be outside conscious control, the therapist helps them uncover how it could have been conditioned responses towards previous problem situations.

So that wraps up this series of posts on CBT. I hoped y’all managed to learn a bit more! And feel free to share any questions that you might have about CBT too!
