I have experience with it. It works if you are willing to put in the time and effort. I was given ”homework” to do every week, which included reading, keeping logs, exercises, etc.

It also takes a lot of time, so it is a commitment but worth it for sure.

I went to a course in CBT. I think it was six group meetings where they explained CBT and let us do exercises as well as voluntary home assignments. It convinced me that it works when used to treat what it’s meant to treat. 🙂
