Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is the most extensively studied (and most effective) type of therapy for anxiety and depression. Watch this video, by one of the foremost leaders in CBT, explaining how CBT works for both conditions.
Dennis Greenberger, PhD, addresses the differences and similarities between symptoms of anxiety and depression, how the disorders are treated with CBT, and what patients can expect in treatment.
How CBT treats Anxiety and Depression
This webinar is an educational presentation, offered by the ADAA (Anxiety & Depression Association of America), of which I am a member. I recommend beginning at minute “4” and after minute “39” there’s an optional Q & A period.
I also belong to the Association for Behavioral & Cognitive Therapies (ABCT) which provides excellent CBT ‘Fact Sheets’ for Anxiety Disorders, including:
- Panic Disorder
- Social Phobia
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
- Specific Phobias
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
I highly recommend the CBT Fact Sheet for Depression as well.
