Dr. J. Ryan Fuller in The Media

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Behavior Therapy (BT) have not been given nearly the attention that Psychoanalytic Therapy in the mass media over past decades. 

Psychoanalytic Therapy, originally based on the work of Sigmund Freud, has infiltrated the American psyche through literature and popular television.  Shows like Frasier, In Treatment, and numerous movies portray therapy as lying on a couch, speaking freely about what comes to mind, with little feedback from the therapist for extended periods of time.  While some may find this interesting and helpful, Cognitive and Behavior Therapy (CBT) looks much different in practice.  And CBT and BT have lots of scientific support.

One goal of Dr. Fuller is to help educate consumers about how Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Behavior Therapy actually work and how effective they can be for treating mental health issues.  CBT and Behavior Therapies can effectively treat a number of issues including phobias, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, anger management problems, relationship issues, substance use disorders, weight management issues, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder, etc.

Therefore it is important to provide accurate information about how mental health problems affect people, how they are maintained, and what treatments are effective.  While we do not have scientifically supported treatments for every disorder, many problems can be treated.  It is important for consumers to know which issues can be treated and what treatments are most effective.
