Shenandoah Psychiatric Medicine is a group of psychiatrists in Augusta County, VA specializing in the treatment of mood and thought disorders, major depression, PTSD, Bipolar disorder, and Schizophrenia. The psychiatrists at Shenandoah Psychiatric Medicine are passionate about creating a program of care that’s the perfect fit for you. That’s why we offer comprehensive care all of our patients through group therapy, single therapy, or cognitive behavioral therapy.
So, what exactly is cognitive behavioral therapy? According to the American Psychological Association, cognitive behavioral therapy (or CBT) is “a form of psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems including depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, eating disorders and severe mental illness.”
CBT is based off of several core principles, which state that psychological problems are based partly on unhelpful ways to thinking and patterns of behavior. The symptoms of these problems can be lessened and relieved by learning better ways to cope with them. Thus, CBT centers around efforts to change ways of thinking.
At Shenandoah Psychiatric Medicine, we use group therapy, single therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, or any combination of the three to best meet your personal mental health needs. CBT is one way in which we have worked to make positive changes with our clients.
