Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
Triumph Youth Services utilizes a Cognitive Behavioral Treatment model including Positive Peer Culture as part of its constant therapeutic milieu. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps solve problems such as dysfunctional emotions, behaviors and cognitions, through goal oriented approaches. Commonly used techniques include: having students keep a diary of significant events, associated feelings, thoughts and behaviors; questioning and testing cognitions, thinking errors, evaluations and beliefs that might be unhelpful and unrealistic; gradually facing activities which may have been avoided and implementing new ways of behaving and reacting. Relaxation, mindfulness and distraction techniques are also commonly included.
