Initially Cbt approaches focused on the management of depressive disorders.
Now CBT has application with conditions that often cannot be treated effectively in other ways, such as:
OCD obsessive compulsive disorders
eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia nervosa
somatic problems and psychosomatisation disorders
sexual and marital problems
excessive worry, generalized anxiety
social and interpersonal anxiety and phobias
rigid and inflexible traits such as, for example, perfectionism
fear and management of conflict
fear of making decisions
addictions such as gambling and pornography
bereavement including loss of a relationship or loss of status
CBT is also proving to be an effective approach in providing life, executive, motivational and sport coaching.
