If you are searching for a BCBS therapist, look no further than Carolina Partners! Carolina Partners provides compassionate mental health care throughout North Carolina by offering quality psychiatric, psychological, and therapeutic services.
The therapists at Carolina Partners work with patients in a couple of different ways. However, the goal of treatment is to help individuals understand why they are acting and thinking in ways that are troubling or dangerous to themselves (or others). This often allows a person to have more control over his or her behaviors and to change these behaviors when possible.
One of the specific ways in which our therapists help a person understand and better control his or her behaviors is through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a treatment that focuses on the relationship between an individual’s thought, feelings, and behaviors. A CBT therapist will try to explore the links between the thoughts and emotions that occur prior to disruptive behaviors in people with mental illness. By establishing these connections, individuals learn to identify and change inappropriate or negative thought patterns and, as a consequence, can address the behaviors associated with their illness. A common goal through this type of therapy is to recognize negative thoughts or mind-sets (mental processes such as perceiving, remembering, reasoning, decision making, and problem solving) and to replace them with positive thoughts, which will lead to more appropriate and beneficial behavior.
