Cognitive behavioral therapy (also known as CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on how one’s thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors affect mental health. CBT posits that our maladaptive or unrealistic views of ourselves, the world, and relationships often support our experience of negative emotions like anxiety and sadness. Likewise, our behavioral choices often serve to increase these negative feelings and thoughts. CBT therapists focus on present symptoms to help individuals alter their thoughts and behaviors, thereby improving their emotional states. For more information about CBT, click here.
Exposure and response prevention (also known as ERP) is a technique used in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder. In ERP, the client and therapist work together to develop a hierarchy of feared situations. Then, therapists gradually and systematically help individuals to confront anxiety-provoking situations while preventing them from carrying out rituals to reduce the resulting anxiety. Over time, the anxiety response is reduced and symptoms decrease. ERP has demonstrated effectiveness in multiple studies and is generally considered to be the first-line treatment for OCD.

Mindfulness is the practice of attending to the present moment with a non-judgmental stance. It is a component of Zen Buddhism, and research has shown that mindfulness can serve as an effective tool in reducing anxiety symptoms. With anxiety and OCD, we often place too much value on our thoughts and treat them as if they are reality. Paradoxically, learning to accept unwanted thoughts, even the most distressing intrusive ones, can help to reduce their impact on our lives.
