Cognitive Therapy Center of New York
Cognitive Therapy Center of New York
The Cognitive Therapy Center of New York is one of several centers established throughout the world with the cooperation of Dr. Beck. These centers have been designed for the purposes of outpatient psychotherapy, training, and research.
The Manhattan Center was established by Dr. Jeffrey Young in 1986, and he continues to serve as the Center Director.
Cognitive therapy, located in midtown Manhattan - along with its affiliated centers -  is an internationally-recognized institute for cognitive therapy, directed by Dr. Jeffrey Young.
Cognitive therapy views emotional problems as influenced by negative or extreme thought patterns. These patterns have frequently become so habitual that they are experienced as automatic and go unnoticed by the individual. 
While in treatment, patients are taught how to uncover these negative patterns and replace them with more adaptive ways of viewing life events. Through this process, patients learn self-help techniques that can produce rapid symptom shifts, solve current life problems, and improve self-esteem.
Cognitive therapy also addresses self-defeating behavior patterns, such as problems with assertiveness or intimacy.
How Cognitive Therapy is Different...
Cognitive therapy incorporates a variety of features that differ from traditional psychotherapy, and that shorten the process of change. Four of these elements are:
- The cognitive therapist actively directs patients to the discovery of central thinking problems.
- The cognitive therapist engages patients as active participants by assigning therapeutic homework.
- Cognitive therapy focuses on the resolution of current, specific problems.
- The therapist makes joint decisions with the patient and regularly asks for feedback to maintain a high degree of collaboration and empathy.
The Development of Cognitive Therapy...
Cognitive Therapy was developed at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in the 1970's by Aaron T. Beck, M.D., in response to his dissatisfaction with traditional approaches to psychotherapy.
Since that time, there has been an intensive investigation of this approach at academic centers around the world. Cognitive therapy (along with other variations of cognitive behavior therapy) is now probably the most widely researched and practiced of all modern psychotherapies. 
The effectiveness of cognitive therapy for the treatment of depression, anxiety, and an extensive list of other disorders, is now well supported by a large body of research. For depression, these studies indicate that cognitive therapy typically reduces symptoms as effectively as antidepressant medication, and results in a significantly lower relapse rate (i.e., the depression is much less likely to recur in the months and years to come). In addition, of course, cognitive therapy does not have all the side effects associated with antidepressant medication. With many patients, especially those with more severe symptoms, we combine cognitive therapy with medication.
