Cognitive Distortions

Cognitive distortions are irrational thoughts that influence our emotions. Everyone experiences cognitive distortions to some degree, but in their more extreme form they can be maladaptive and harmful. Use this CBT worksheet to help educate clients and help them recognize irrational thought patterns that might be causing harm.

Sample copy reads: "Magnification and Minimization: Exaggerating or minimizing the importance of events. One might believe their own achievements are unimportant, or that their mistakes are excessively important."
