Healthcare professionals can use different therapy models to help their clients achieve greater health. Healthcare professionals love this model because it allows for in-depth analysis of the clients’ lives to identify the root cause of their psychiatric problems. Research shows that CBT can be helpful in treating anxiety and depression-related disorders (Hagglund, et al. 2020). This helps both professionals and patients assess and reward the most beneficial behaviors. CBT is patient-centered and requires significant patient engagement. CBT has a very structured approach, making it easy for patients and their families to follow their progress, as well as determine whether treatment is beneficial. Its organized nature allows clients to communicate with experts in a clear and transparent manner. The peer suggested that if one partner is not committed, CBT results could be compromised. CBT requires that patients and therapists work together effectively. In order to enhance the effectiveness of interaction, the parties should show kindness and openness. The downside of CBT is the fact that it does not deal with the wider issue of family or system, but rather focuses on the individual’s capacity to change. The larger environment can also impact the individual’s health and well-being. To offer therapy services, licensed therapists in Illinois must have a license.
CBT has the advantage that clients can overcome their negative emotions through indexing them using positive emotions or fantasies. CBT helps individuals deal with traumatic events, which can boost their self-esteem, emotional, mental and behavioral health. According to the colleague, CBT provides helpful and practical skills patients can apply in everyday life that will help them cope with stress. The ability to deal with personal and/or social problems should not be lost after successful treatment. Chand and colleagues (2018) also state that the therapy teaches patients to communicate their feelings, as well as how they can resolve any situation. According to the colleague, some patients have experienced a decline in their condition after CBT therapy. Sometimes, CBT therapy can force patients to relive painful memories they wish to forget. Flashbacks can cause patients to experience reliving painful events that may further harm their health. Reliving negative events may make it difficult for someone to remember them, particularly if the event had an important impact on their lives. The outcome of CBT may also be affected by poor cooperation between the patient and the therapist. While the therapist might be able help the patient overcome their difficulties, bad company can limit the benefits the patients receive from the treatment. CBT is not allowed in Illinois. It could lead to patients suffering from its negative effects.
