This Funzing Experience:
CBT Can Change Your Life....but what is CBT?
Corinne Sweet, Psychologist, Psychotherapist, Author and Broadcaster.

CBT - or Cognitive Behavioural Psychology- is a 21st century buzz term. It's everywhere, and lots of people are seeking it out online or taking short courses. But what is CBT? How does it work? Is it effective? How do you start?

CBT started in the 1960's as a branch of Behavioural Psychology. Psychologists became fascinated by the idea of 'shaping' behaviour through 'positive reinforcement' and rewards (think Pavlov dogs, B.F.Skinner). The ideas have filtered into everyday life from gold stars on school charts to loyalty cards to Clockwork Orange and Guantanamo Bay.

Now CBT has been developed into a practical, progressive therapy which can be as effective as anti-depressants in treating depression, anxiety and phobias. So does it work for everyone? Should you do it online, with a therapist, from a book?

Corinne Sweet, author of bestselling Change Your Life with CBT (Pearsons), will explain how you can develop a 'toolkit' of CBT skills to help you conquer your hatred of spiders, fear of flying or obsessive thoughts and behaviours. You can help yourself beat anxiety, depression and even to learn new skills.

Corinne Sweet is the author of over bestselling 16 books, including popular psychology (The Mindfulness Journal (Pan Macmillan), ghostwritten life story/biography (Thrown Away Child (Simon & Schuster), and social history (Money On't Table: Grit, Work and Family Pride in the Heartlands of England (September).
