CBT explores the connections between thought patterns, emotional states, and physical sensations.
The Starling Minds online program uses CBT practices to guide you to evaluate how you think about yourself, other people, and events in your life objectively. It gives you the skills to recognize and combat negative thinking patterns and behavior. It’s like fitness training for your brain!
Thousands of people use Starling Minds to become more resilient everyday.
I’m feeling better – physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually! I’ve improved my eating habits and workout 6 or 7 days a week for at least 30 minutes. The mental fitness challenge really helped me to get on track.
I now take time to breathe, relax, and calm myself – even if only one minute at a time. That has really helped reduce my feelings of worry.
I realize now how my mental health has been flagging for many years, but I didn’t realize that I wasn’t coping well until recently. I was slowly depleting my battery until there was nothing left.
CBT training is considered to be the ‘gold standard’ for talk therapy. It’s endorsed by the World Health Organization, the National Institute of Mental Health, and national psychiatric and psychological associations in Canada, the US, Australia, and the UK. Hundreds of well-designed research studies have demonstrated its effectiveness.
How Effective is CBT?
Research shows that CBT is one of the most effective forms of treatment for those coping with depression and anxiety.
CBT alone is 50-75% effective for overcoming depression and anxiety after 8-15 sessions.
Medication alone is 50-75% effective, however, science still does not understand the long-term effects on the brain and body.
Medication and CBT combined is most effective, with 75-90% of people becoming mentally well again.
