Does cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the most successful treatment methods available. Many research studies have demonstrated CBT to be as effective as or more effective than other therapy methods and medications.

However, CBT works best for individuals who take an active role in their treatment and apply the skills and techniques learned in their therapy sessions to challenges they face in everyday life.
