🪁 Paradigm | How powerful is CBT for work stress?

One of the most popular therapy types for burnout is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is a goal-oriented, structured form of psychotherapy that helps people identify and change negative patterns of thinking and behavior that are contributing to their distress.


In the context of burnout, CBT can help people identify and challenge negative thoughts about themselves, their work, and their ability to cope with stress. It can also help them develop coping skills for managing stress, such as relaxation techniques, time management skills, and assertiveness training.


CBT works by focusing on the relationship between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. The therapist will help you identify negative thought patterns that are contributing to your burnout, such as "I'm a failure" or "I can't handle this." Once you've identified these thoughts, the therapist will work with you to challenge them and develop more realistic and helpful ways of thinking. For example, you might reframe the thought "I'm a failure" to "I'm doing the best I can in a difficult situation." CBT can also help you develop coping skills for managing stress, such as relaxation techniques, time management skills, and assertiveness training. These skills can help you to better manage the demands of your job and your life, and prevent burnout from recurring.
