Teach your clients to challenge their negative thoughts and self-talk using this CBT worksheet. In this worksheet your client will be asked to take a step back and consider their situation and thoughts from a new perspective, such as that from a friend. Each question is designed to lead your client to look at their negative thoughts more objectively.
This worksheet assumes that your client has some basic knowledge about the CBT model and they are able to identify their negative thoughts. Worksheets to help them achieve these goals are linked below.
