You very likely spent a great deal of time at home studying your multiplication tables, maybe with flashcards. Goal achievement (if obtained) could take a very long time if all a person were only to think about the techniques and topics taught was for one hour per week.

A sound therapeutic relationship is necessary for effective therapy, but not the focus.
Some forms of therapy assume that the main reason people get better in therapy is because of the positive relationship between the therapist and client.
The approaches that emphasize stoicism teach the benefits of feeling, at worst, calm when confronted with undesirable situations.
They also emphasize the fact that we have our undesirable situations whether we are upset about them or not.There are several approaches to cognitive-behavioral therapy, including Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, Rational Behavior Therapy, Rational Living Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, and Dialectic Behavior Therapy.1.CBT is based on the Cognitive Model of Emotional Response.The average number of sessions clients receive (across all types of problems and approaches to CBT) is only 16.Other forms of therapy, like psychoanalysis, can take years.Therefore, CBT therapists focus on teaching rational self-counseling skills.4.CBT is a collaborative effort between the therapist and the client.Therefore, the goal of therapy is to help clients unlearn their unwanted reactions and to learn a new way of reacting.9.CBT theory and techniques rely on the Inductive Method.Cognitive-behavioral therapists seek to learn what their clients want out of life (their goals) and then help their clients achieve those goals. Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, Rational Behavior Therapy, and Rational Living Therapy emphasize aspects of stoicism. Cognitive-behavioral therapy does not tell people how they should feel.The therapist’s role is to listen, teach, and encourage, while the client’s roles is to express concerns, learn, and implement that learning.5. However, most people seeking therapy do not want to feel they way they have been feeling.
