What is TBCT training comprised of?
Like CBT, TBCT is an active approach to treatment that helps clients to recognize situationally based thoughts and unhelpful beliefs that exacerbate emotional distress. One of the main goals of both approaches is to help clients modify the so-called core beliefs (CBs) which are those global, rigid, and over-generalized perceptions about themselves, which are accepted as absolutely true to the point that they are not questioned. However, TBCT has a unique approach to conceptualization and techniques that make it a distinct intervention in modifying clients' CBs.
