Cognitive Behavioral Social Skills Therapy is an intervention that improves the patientâ€™s cognitive and behavioral skills for changing his/her problematic drinking behavior.
CBT is based on the principles of social learning theory and views drinking behavior as functionally related to major problems in a person’s life.
It posits that addressing this broad spectrum of problems will prove more effective than focusing on drinking alone.
Emphasis is placed on overcoming skill deficits and increasing the person’s ability to cope with high-risk situations that commonly precipitate relapse, including both interpersonal difficulties and intrapersonal discomfort such as anger or depression.
