Cognitive-behavioral therapy

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a very active type of counseling. During cognitive-behavioral therapy, the counselor will:

  • Teach you about your illness, its symptoms, and how to recognize when an episode of illness is likely to occur.
  • Help you change thinking and behavior patterns.
  • Teach you different ways to handle problems.
  • Help you identify stress or triggers for illness episodes in order to reduce or stop these episodes.
