What Exactly is the Goal of Christian Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

The goal of CCBT is to use your own religious tradition as a foundation to identify and replace ongoing depressive thoughts and to emphasize that your religious beliefs and practices can be used as resources to reduce depressive symptoms and facilitate positive emotions.


The main point of cognitive behavioral therapy is to show that how we think about a situation often drives our emotions, and that our emotions can in turn drive our response and behavior

These sessions are going to help you to develop the skills you need to effectively process your emotions and to have more control over your emotions, so they are not controlling you. There will be times in your life when an emotion takes over, but with practice these times will become less frequent.
