5 Common Myths about Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
Whether you’ve been to therapy or not, you’ve probably heard about cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). It’s a popular type of therapy that many, many therapists use to help their clients treat everything from severe anxiety to debilitating depression. But even though CBT is widespread, it’s still highly misunderstood—even by the professionals who practice it. Numerous myths still abound. Below, two psychologists who specialize in CBT share the facts behind the most common misconceptions.

How I Cope with Suicidal Ideation
Like many pieces related to mental illness, I’ve found that self-care recommendations often address more socially acceptable symptoms  — typically those that relate to anxiety and mild depression. While it is important to address those and talk about the things we can do to keep ourselves running in tip top shape. We don’t talk enough about what to do when things get scary or dangerous for yourself or loved ones. As a person who lives with severe, debilitating and sometimes dangerous mental illness, most of my energy goes towards very basic practices necessary to keep myself alive. It’s hard to co...

Panic disorder is characterised by the presence of recurrent unexpected panic attacks, discrete periods of fear or anxiety that have a rapid onset and include symptoms such as racing heart, chest pain, sweating and shaking. Panic disorder is common in the general population, with a lifetime prevalence of 1% to 4%.

You’re cold and hot at the same time with sweat trickling down your back, hair standing on your arms. You finally get out of your car. But as you enter the store, you feel wobbly and like you’re going to pass out. The fluorescent lighting seems especially stifling. The wide aisles, oddly enough, feel claustrophobic. Your breath feels finite, like a balloon floating up to the sky, which you can’t catch. In fact, at times you feel like you’re floating along with the balloon. At times you f...

You won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won’t be the same person who walked in.

For example, this study showed that children more often had separation anxiety disorder. And adolescents were marginally (but not significantly) more likely to have generalised anxiety disorder and social anxiety disorder. Ad...

A Daily Plan for Overcoming Agoraphobia
Agoraphobia narrows your world, literally and figuratively. People with agoraphobia avoid certain situations or places that may cause them to panic or feel trapped. This may include standing in line, driving on a bridge, being in open or enclosed spaces (like the movie theater), using public transportation or being outside the house alone. There are gradients of agoraphobia. For some people the fear of being outside their home is so severe they become completely housebound. Others do venture outside but only to certain places they have to go, such as work. This still becomes a miserable experience, producing sweaty palms, ...
