How Effective is Cognitive Therapy?
Very. Cognitive therapy is the most widely researched of all modern psychotherapies. There have been over 500 studies designed to investigate the benefits of cognitive therapy.

In addition, cognitive therapy has been shown to be helpful with the following disorders:
