Cognitive Behavior Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is based on the premise that thoughts, not situations or events, cause our feelings and behaviors. When you believe your harmful thoughts are reality that can lead to self-destructive behavior. With the help of a trained therapist, you can begin to recognize irrational thoughts and learn ways to challenge those notions or unlearn them. When you recognize that your beliefs are not facts, you can better cope when negative thoughts or feelings arise.
CBT can be effective for a wide variety of mental illnesses, including mood disorders, depression, anxiety disorders, and psychosis. For many patients with depression, CBT has been shown to be as helpful as antidepressant medication.
Psychoeducation is an evidence-based therapeutic intervention for patients that provides information and support to better understand and cope with negative behaviors, thoughts and feelings. These groups are led by highly trained professionals such as social workers, activity therapists, nurses and pharmacists.
Haven Behavioral Hospital of Frisco offers alternative therapies to supplement traditional types of therapy. These include music therapy, recreational therapy, and dance movement therapy.
The stretching and movement of dance movement has shown to ease not only physical tension but also mental stress. Music therapy helps decrease anxiety, reduce muscle tension and, in some cases, increase socialization. Recreational therapy, or therapeutic recreation, use arts and crafts, sports or other hands-on activities to promote mental health and wellness.
