This theory focuses on what you think, how those thoughts affect your feelings and thus your mood, and as a result how you behave and communicate in your life. In this therapy we take a look at automatic, irrational thoughts, examine their irrationality and substitute them with rational thoughts. If an irrational thought is causing a person great emotional pain and he/she can see that the thought isn't based in any reality, that it's just created from fear, then often the thought can be changed and thus the feeling that follows is also changed.
