Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a therapeutic model that aids in regulating emotions. Regulating emotions involve gaining control over negative cognition and emotions that are behind memories that have been suppressed. The main focus of this therapeutic technique is to abolish a connection between negative emotional processes and the memories that are involved. To gain access to these often hidden psychological experiences is to look at physical and emotional behavior to see if there is a pattern and any psychological disorders that the client may have. While past events may receive some attention during this type of therapy, there is not too much of an emphasis of the cause of the distress.
