Medical Definition of Cognitive therapy

1. A direct form of psychotherapy based on the interpretation of situations (cognitive structure of experiences) that determine how an individual feels and behaves. It is based on the premise that cognition, the process of acquiring knowledge and forming beliefs, is a primary determinant of mood and behaviour. The therapy uses behavioural and verbal techniques to identify and correct negative thinking that is at the root of the aberrant behaviour. (12 Dec 1998)
