Sample Key Takeaways:
1) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a standardized approach based on the theory that our thoughts affect and cause our emotions and behaviors. CBT works to identify the thought processes that cause troubled behaviors. However, Dr. Nicole LePera found that her patients were more complex than CBT could account for.
2) Holistic psychology looks at all aspects of a person, including their biological and sociocultural backgrounds. LePera found this extremely enlightening when looking at substance-abuse patients. She recognized their addiction included cycles of emotions, like always avoiding or seeking out certain emotions when dealing with trauma.
