What Is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of mental health treatment. It is designed to identify and alter underlying destructive or disturbing thought patterns that can negatively affect behavior and emotions. It is a technique that has proven effective for a variety of problems including depression, anxiety, relationship problems, women’s health problems, addiction, eating disorders, and trauma.

How Los Angeles Patients Can Benefit From Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Various studies have found that CBT results in significant improvement in terms of functioning and quality of life. Research has also suggested that CBT has been proven to be equally effective — or even more effective — than psychiatric medications and other forms of psychological treatment.

CBT allows people to build a healthy self-esteem, develop a more rational way of thinking, and feel hopeful about their lives and condition.


Dr. Katie Dashtban practices a modality known as TEAM-CBT.

TEAM-CBT is a new development of CBT. It was developed by Dr. David Burns who is a renowned psychiatrist and author internationally recognized as one of the forefathers of CBT. It is a measurement-based and results-driven therapy that has been demonstrated to be more effective than other forms of therapy.

TEAM is an acronym that stands for the four critical components of effective therapy: Testing, Empathy, Agenda-Setting, and Methods.

  • Testing

At the beginning of each session, testing is used to measure progress and determine stuck points, allowing your therapist to make modifications to the treatment to accelerate healing. Patients have to answer a short mood survey that determines how they feel at that moment. This gives patients the opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings and why they think and feel that way.

  • Empathy

TEAM-CBT therapists use a variety of empathy and effective communication skills that allow them to establish rapport with you. Patients can share their innermost thoughts, feelings, and concerns knowing that they will be respected, understood, valued, and accepted.

  • Assessment of Resistance

TEAM-CBT therapists use specific powerful therapeutic techniques that will allow them to understand the issues that are getting in the way of recovery.

  • Methods

TEAM-CBT therapists have at their disposal over 100 powerful cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal techniques that allow patients to fight against various mental health issues including low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, and relationship problems, among others.
