If you’re coping with a psychiatric problem or disorder, cognitive-behavioral therapy may be able to help you.
The Cognitive Therapy Center at Rush evaluates people and treats them with cognitive-behavioral therapies for a range of psychiatric problems and disorders. They include depression, anxiety, insomnia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the idea that the way someone views the world has a major influence on emotions and behavior. It aims to help people recognize the connection and learn new tools for dealing with stressful situations.
Some patients are treated only with cognitive-behavioral therapy. Others may be treated with a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy and medication.
