More about this course

What is CBT?

Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, abbreviated as CBT, is a widely used therapy that helps to rectify Cognitive Distortions so that people can break through their limiting self-philosophies. It helps them live more empowered and autonomous lives by transforming their own thought process from the inside out. Cognitive Distortions are exaggerated or irrational thought patterns, a negative outlook on reality sometimes called negative schemas, involved in the onset of the perpetuation of psychopathological states of thinking, that are often inaccurate and negatively biased.

The negative thought patterns are potential time bombs and can cause irreparable damage to a person’s attitude and personality. Unless treated early they may lead to disappointment, frustration, anger, anxiety, and depression.

What is the Importance of this Course?

Various studies indicate that one in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. Around 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide. In terms of quality years of life lost due to disability or death, the U.S. ranks third for unipolar depressive disorders, just after China, which is ranked No.1, followed by India. As per WHO, certain mental disorders like Anxiety Disorders, including Panic Disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder(OCD), Phobias, Depression, Borderline Personality Disorder(BPD), Bipolar Disorder(BD), and other mood disorders, Eating Disorders, Personality Disorders, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder(PTSD) have been on the rise worldwide. The effects of #Covid19 on the mental health of people would be gigantic. Treatments are available, but nearly two-thirds of people with a known mental disorder never seek help from a health professional due to a lack of awareness and fear of stigma.
