Behavioral Activation

Behavioral Activation

worksheet
Behavioral activation is a technique used in CBT and other behavioral therapies, especially during the early stages of depression treatments.

Psychoeducation is an important part of treating bipolar disorder. Understanding protective and risk factors will help your clients avoid manic and depressive episodes as much as is possible, and it will help them seek help when they're unavoidable.

The Cycle of Anger

The Cycle of Anger

worksheet
Show your clients how their anger can be triggered, and how it escalates, using the Cycle of Anger printout.

Anger Diary

Anger Diary

worksheet
Before successfully managing anger, many clients will first need to develop the ability to recognize their temper before it has reached explosive levels. One common and effective strategy for improving emotional awareness is by recording relevant events in an Anger Diary. This task may be challenging the first time around, so we suggest that you practice completing this worksheet in session using examples or events from the client's past...

Use art to teach young clients to name, identify, and recognize their emotions, and their associated bodily sensations. Ask your client to choose a color to represent each emotion, and then color in the part of the body where they experience that feeling. For example, children might color fists red to represent anger...

Introduction to Anger Management

Learning to recognize and respect triggers for substance use can make a significant impact on recovery.

The When I am Tempted to Use worksheet includes a list of common triggers, and some blank space for your client to write in the things that put them at risk of relapse or cravings...
Substance Use Motivation Ruler

Substance Use Motivation Ruler

worksheet
The Substance Use Motivation Ruler is an excellent tool derived from motivational interviewing. Ask your client to pinpoint, on a scale of 1 to 10, how motivated they are to end their drug use. In this case, 1 means "not at all motivated" and 10 means "completely motivated". In the spirit of motivational interviewing, you want to use this worksheet to build congruence, and focus on what motivates the client...
Thought Log (with example)

Thought Log (with example)

worksheet
The thought log is one of the most basic tools of the CBT practitioner. Because this tool is so important, we've created several variations with only slight differences. This version stands apart by including a short example already written on the first line. A thought log can help your client learn to recognize how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors interact and influence one another...
