Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the most widely-used therapy for anxiety disorders among children teenage and adults. It is effective in the treatment of panic disorder, phobias, social anxiety disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder, among many other conditions.

CBT looks into negative patterns and distortions in the way we look at the world and ourselves. It has two main components:

1. Cognitive therapy examines how negative thoughts, or cognitions, contribute to anxiety.

2. Behavior therapy examines how you behave and react in situations that trigger anxiety. The basic  concept of CBT is that our thoughts and not external events that affect the way we feel. Therefore, it’s not the situation you’re in that determines how you feel, but your perception of the situation.
