I asked Wonderlib.com this question: How is cognitive behavioral therapy like teaching/learning?

Corina Obrero @corinaobrero, a freelance writer and registered nurse who is passionate about health, medicine, personal finance and investing, responded. This is her response:
Cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT is a form of psychotherapy which is based in the cognitive model. According to this model, our perception of things affect our emotions. Therefore, when a certain situation makes a person distressed, it is their perception about the situation that’s making them distressed, not the situation itself. CBT will help clients identify distorted or unrealistic thoughts that they may have. Once these clients learned how to identify their distorted thoughts, they will be able to change them and it will be easier for them to feel better and initiate behavioral change. A therapist performing CBT will act like a teacher who facilitates the problem-solving process of the client. The client should also be actively engaged in the process. The therapist will assist the client in identifying his/her problems. Once the problems are identified, the therapist and the client will develop an action plan to solve the problems that were identified. Therapists may also give homeworks to their clients as these will reinforce the client’s learning from the CBT sessions. Once the therapy ends, clients will be able to apply the skills they learned in dealing with everyday situations. Based on the description of how CBT works, it is evident that it applies the basic teaching principles that are also used in regular classrooms. For instance, it emphasizes the importance of active engagement from the client since this is vital for true learning. The therapist, just like the teacher, will not point out exactly what the problem is, he/she will just assist the client in discovering it on his/her own. During the problem solving process, the therapist will not dictate the “right” way to solve the identified problems. Ongoing evaluation is also performed to test the ability of the client to apply the skills that he/she learned, just like in the regular school setting.” https://wonderlib.com/research-network/response/55620002d1aa89fd0090e134

The Public School Does More than Educate

by Duane Sharrock

In the United States, schools are not only places to educate students. Each school is a “point of contact” or a “hub”, for various kinds of services and organizations. In addition to special education services, other services are often provided: health (including mental health), crisis interventions, temporary shelters for the impoverished (where food is provided as well), the school directs traffic to social services programs, community programs, and recreational programs. Some schools include “student resource officers” (i.e. police) and may house a probation officer, as well. Standardized testing, expert witnesses, character witnesses, and other kinds of observations and observers are cited in research for criminal investigations, scholarly exploration, and historical documentation. Lately, education has begun to include social and emotional skills instruction, as well. People may complain that the nation is becoming…
