There's probably no tool more central to CBT than the Thought Log. CBT therapists posit that you can reduce unwanted feelings and behaviors by challenging irrational thoughts, and the thought log is often the first step in this process.
Thought logs are used by psychotherapy clients to become more aware of their irrational thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and the relationships between all three. After identifying harmful irrational thoughts, the client will be able to intervene, and begin changing them.
Because of their importance, we've created several different version of the thought log. This one stands apart because of its simplicity. No frills, no examples, and nothing extra—just the essentials in a clean and professional package.
