Thinking Errors

worksheet

Thinking errors, commonly known as cognitive distortions, are irrational beliefs that contribute to uncomfortable emotions and unwanted behavior. Children as young as 7 years old can benefit from cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) interventions, but it is important that the material is presented in an age-appropriate manner.

The Thinking Errors worksheet is a kid-friendly introduction to cognitive distortions. Using simple language and plenty of examples, this worksheet describes nine common thinking errors. These include mind reading, feelings as facts, blowing things up, and more.
