Cognitive Behavior Intervention in Chronic Illness Management (Oct. 2020)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a structured style of talk therapy (or psychotherapy) that focuses on changing maladaptive thinking and behavioral patterns to promote improved mood and wellness. CBT can be helpful in management of chronic health conditions by helping change thoughts, emotions, and behaviors related to pain, fatigue, and other impacts of chronic health conditions. It can further help with stress management and improved coping strategies.
