In brief: Yes, It works

. . . If you attend the sessions and practice the skills.
It's support-oriented, letting you acknowledge & build on skills. It's collaborative -- attending to relationships between clients & therapists, allowing issues to be worked out. It's cognitive-based, helping to identify thinking patterns that lead to suffering. It includes both individual & group sessions - best way to learn & practice.
