Do You Know Anything About Cognitive Behavior Therapy? Is It Good?

Question by Sienna Baker: Do you know anything about Cognitive Behavior Therapy? Is it good?
I’m thinking of seeing a therapist and I’ve heard lots of good things about CBT (cognitive behavior therapy).

I’m trying to get out of a never-ending dystructive relationship, and also trying to start a positive one with another man who is long distance… I just want to talk to someone to see if they can come up with a positive way to do this…

Is CBT for me?
Or is there something else I should try?

Best answer:

Answer by ’nuff said?
CBT literally saved my life from suicidal depression. Just to give you an idea of how powerful it is, my psychiatrist said “you probably will never get over your depression.”. I wrote a short story about my experience with it here:

Now, if CBT can do that, I believe it can do just about anything if you apply it properly. The book is called: “The Feeling Good Handbook” by Dr. David Burns. I’ve been cured for a little over a year now, and life has never looked so good. BTW, the good doctor covers far more than just depression. He covers just about everything from job interviews to marital relations, so it’s right up your alley.
