This short film introduces cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). CBT is a talking therapy that is based on the idea that the way people think affects how they feel and changes what they do. During CBT sessions, the patient and therapist discuss difficulties the patient is experiencing and how their thoughts and feelings affect the problem. The patient and therapist then work together to find ways of helping the person cope with their depression. CBT is an educational approach where patients learn skills that they can try out for themselves, skills that they can continue to use after the therapy is finished.
