Core Beliefs: Examining the Evidence

Core Beliefs: Examining the Evidence

worksheet
When the evidence that underlies core beliefs is challenged, the core beliefs can be changed. However, this can be difficult, because not all evidence is treated equally. Information that supports a core belief is easily integrated, making the belief stronger. Information that does not support a belief tends to be ignored...
Cognitive Restructuring: Socratic Questions

Cognitive Restructuring: Socratic Questions

worksheet
The term cognitive restructuring refers to the process of challenging, and changing, irrational thoughts. Socratic questioning is one technique to encourage this process. Therapists use Socratic questioning verbally by asking probing questions about their clients' irrational thoughts.

Behavioral Experiment

Behavioral Experiment

worksheet
Our thoughts and beliefs determine how we feel, and how we act, at any given moment. Even thoughts that are irrational, or lack evidence, impact our mood and behavior. A behavioral experiment is a CBT tool for testing our thoughts and beliefs, and replacing those that are irrational and harmful with healthy alternatives...
CBT: Example and Practice Sheet

CBT: Example and Practice Sheet

worksheet
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...

Thoughts & Behaviors: Costs and Benefits

worksheet
A cost/benefit analysis is a classic technique for decision-making. In cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), this technique has been adapted for use in cognitive restructuring. Put more simply, a cost/benefit analysis can be used to challenge old, unhealthy patterns of thinking, allowing them to be replaced by new, more adaptive thoughts...

Cognitive Restructuring: Decatastrophizing

worksheet
Cognitive distortions are irrational thoughts that have the power to influence how you feel. Everyone has some cognitive distortions—they’re a normal part of being human. However, when cognitive distortions are too plentiful or extreme, they can be harmful. One common type of cognitive distortion is called catastrophizing...
Cognitive Restructuring: Thoughts on Trial

Cognitive Restructuring: Thoughts on Trial

worksheet
Putting Thoughts on Trial is a CBT activity focused on the examination of irrational thoughts. Your client will act as a defense attorney, prosecutor, and judge, as they compare evidence for and against a single thought. Like in a real court of law, only verifiable facts are admissible as evidence. Opinions, assumptions, and conjecture are not allowed...
Thought Record

Thought Record

worksheet
Thought records are like the Swiss Army knife of CBT. They're used to teach about the interactions between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and as a tool for clients to record their own experiences. When it comes to the cognitive restructuring portion of CBT, thought records are a great place to begin challenging irrational thoughts...
Challenging Anxious Thoughts

Challenging Anxious Thoughts

worksheet
The Challenging Anxious Thoughts worksheet will teach your clients about the CBT concept of irrational and rational thoughts, as they relate to anxiety. Psychoeducation is interspersed with examples, and opportunities for your clients to write about their own experiences. Because irrational thoughts can be difficult to pin down without practice, we suggest working closely with your client as they make their way through this worksheet...
