What is the theory behind this CBT Therapy Worksheet Depression?

Depression is a condition where an individual persistently stays in a state of sadness, despair and low mood. It is accompanied by other symptoms such as an inability to feel pleasure and preference for social isolation among many others. Cognitive  Behavioural therapy helps individuals with depression by helping them identify and modify their maladaptive thoughts and negative core beliefs that are negatively affecting their emotions and behaviour.
