Did you know that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is one of the most evidence-based psychosocial treatments we have for mental health issues? Today, its use goes beyond treatment for anxiety disorders and depression to application for a wide range of challenges including psychosis, body dysmorphic disorder, ADHD, and even for coping with aspects of medical illnesses.

Simply put, CBT is about giving people skills or tools to cope with challenges they’re having in their lives. And if you’re willing to put in the time, it can be incredibly effective. In this episode of Shrinking It Down, Gene and Steve are joined by special guest Susan Sprich, Ph.D., Director of the CBT Program at Massachusetts General Hospital. Tune in to learn more about CBT as they discuss how it works and what practice actually looks like, in clinical sessions and on your own.
