Hi everyone--
my psychopharm dr. has suggested that I start CBT. I've had brief experiences with it and have read the _Feeling Good_ books and have done the workbook in a class and in groups in the hospital. I never really took to the theory well. My thought was always that it seemed overly simplistic-- like, "oh obviously, there's flaw #7 in my thinking, and all i have to do is correct that and everything will be ok." A couple of years ago, I do feel like I suffered from a lot of negative and flawed thinking, but I feel like a lot of that has been corrected. The past two years I've been in psychodynamic psychotherapy and my therapists have been psychoanalyst pdocs. I haven't made such good use of that, either, but I feel like it's worked better for me to be able to talk about anythign without so much structure and pressure. Can anyone explain better why CBT might work for me (or why it works well for high-functioning people) and what they've gotten out of it? Thanks.
