It’s May according to the calendar. That means we have reached Mental Health Awareness Month once again. This week the guys are talking Recovery-oriented Cognitive Therapy (CT-R). A form of therapy that was based around cognitive behavioral therapy, Aaron Beck’s therapy developed from a belief that a person’s experiences result in cognitions or thoughts and these are related to core beliefs developed from early life. These cognitions create our emotional behaviors and states.
Hey everyone, welcome to episode two hundred three of Above Ground Podcast. We are into May, spring and we continue to grow. Above Ground Podcast is always trying to bring you useful tools and to turn you on to something new to bring to your mental wellness. This week talk CT-R , a form of CBT that Will was just recently turned on too. CBT Aaron Beck’s Beck’s work with depressed patients taught him that depression is the result of hostility turned inward.
CT-R is Beck’s most recent research and developed theory of therapy. This modality focuses on concrete and actionable steps to promote resilience and recovery. Rather than focusing on symptoms, the team works on aspirations, to identify values and to take steps in pursuit of ones goals.
