Sometimes behavioral and academic problems go hand in hand. Other times, a student can find that their grades slip regardless of any cooccurring behavioral issues. Teachers often remark that it is difficult to determine sometimes whether a student has behavioral issues that are hampering academic achievement or if the academics are causing the behavioral issues. Like the classic chicken or the egg argument, sometimes the causality is circular: behavior effects academics which in turn effects behavior.But for both cases Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) can help make a difference with academic struggles, regardless of causality. CBT aims to correct distorted thinking and maladaptive behavioral patterns that can be at the root of academic problems and struggles. Through behavioral modification and corrections in cognitions, CBT can help students of any age achieve academic success.
