The type of psychotherapy with the most research behind it is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which consists of an array of techniques aimed at transforming self-defeating thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. For example, in this type of counseling patients learn to identify their dysfunctional thoughts—such as exaggerations and black-and-white thinking—and stop or minimize this type of damaging thinking, which contributes to making depression worse.
