HOW WILL MY LIFE BE DIFFERENT AFTER CBT TREATMENT?
If you experience emotional distress that interferes with you personal, social, or professional functioning, we are likely to provide you with the skills and tools needed to improve.
At Behavioral Associates LA we provide you with:
- the opportunity to understand possible origins and functions of the difficulties you experience
- knowledgeable clinicians to teach you the skills needed to achieve your treatment goals
- support through focused, collaborative, step-by-step treatment plans to alleviate the distress
- an environment to practice adaptive responses, in order to be able to predict, understand and cope with challenging moods more effectively
TEACHING YOU SKILLS THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME
Although it is true that established habits are resistant to change, it is also true that initial reduction in distress makes the learning process easier and faster- remember how difficult it is to start exercising and how it becomes easier and more rewarding as you continue with a routine.
While it is difficult to predict for each person, the research on the effectiveness of CBT suggests that majority of those who complete the therapy, will improve significantly and will continue doing well for years to come. Depending on a specific condition, adding medication may be advisable.
Our focus is on defining the nature of your condition and recommending the most effective treatment strategies that may include both therapy and medication (we collaborate with experienced psycho-pharmacologists in the community and refer to them for medication evaluation when appropriate).
