Form of CBT that includes exposing yourself to feared thoughts, images, situations or objects while preventing avoidance behaviors to increase habituation, thus reducing overall anxiety.
Founded on the idea that how we think (cognition), how we feel (emotion) and how we act (behavior) all interact together. Specifically, our thoughts determine our feelings and our behavior. Research has consistently shown CBT to be the most effective treatment for OCD and related anxiety based disorders.
ACT believes that people can live fulfilling lives regardless of symptoms, by emphasizing mindfulness skills to take action that is based on your own values and in ways that will ultimately enrich your life.
