  • Perceived effectiveness for Eating disorder symptoms: None
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 100 min Monthly
Advice & Tips: I have tried very hard with CBT over the years and still seem to find it ineffective. I have come to hold the opinion that it is not the answer for the broad range of conditions it is prescribed for, and that in certain cases where it has been tried and failed to improve the situation another alternative therapy should be offered.

About Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (Psychotherapy)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an umbrella-term for psychotherapeutic systems that deal with cognitions, interpretations, beliefs and responses, with the aim of influencing problematic emotions and behaviors. It is usually done in a group environment but can also done as self-guided practice.
