The goals of individual cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy:
To work on psychological and psychosomatic symptoms (anxiety, depression, psychosomatic problems, etc.)
To teach the client self-management at the following levels:
To increase self-esteem, self-efficacy and self-control (techniques of self-monitoring, self-evaluation and self-rewarding).
To develop the ability to bear life’s stressful situations (coping techniques – techniques of coping with stress and modification of compensation).
To achieve the first two goals we apply breathing and relaxation techniques, systematic desensitization, imagery, “flooding”, “vaccination” against stress, positive thinking and problem solving, cognitive restructuring, planning enjoyable activities as well as assertiveness training and social skills training.
