In brief: Therapy for Thoughts

Cognitive behavioral therapy (cbt) is a psychotherapy in which the therapist and the patient work together to revise problematic thinking patterns that lead to emotional and behavioral problems.
This is essential because one's beliefs affect one's view of self, others, and one's future. What one believes, whether it is true or not, affects every aspect of our lives. "disputing" is one cbt skill.

In brief: CBT

In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, cognitive therapy is usually more focused on the present, more time-limited, and more problem-solving oriented.
In addition, patients learn specific skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. These skills involve identifying distorted thinking, modifying beliefs, relating to others in different ways, and changing behaviors.
