Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can help people learn to change inappropriate or negative thought patterns and behaviors that are troublesome, self-defeating or self-destructive. The goal is to recognize negative beliefs or mind-sets and replace them with positive thoughts or expectations, which will lead to more appropriate and beneficial behavior.
