CBT: Example and Practice Sheet

Early in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), clients will learn the cognitive behavioral model, and begin recording their experiences in a thought log. For many, the jump between these two tasks is difficult. The Cognitive Model: Example & Practice worksheet was designed to bridge this gap.

In this CBT worksheet, the model is illustrated alongside an example, with space for your client to record a real-life example of their own. Using this layout, it's easy to translate the concept of the cognitive behavioral model into practice.

We recommend using this handout prior to a traditional thought log, or when a client struggles to complete a thought log. Imagine this worksheet as "zooming in" and focusing closely on one line of a log.
