Cbt Homework Sheets
A CBT worksheet gives you a chance to reflect on your thinking , when you’re not reacting out of fear or anger, so that it’s easier to identify negative thinking. How successful has this thinking been for you in the past? What advice would you give someone else in the same situation? Identify one or more of the basic types of negative thinking: All-or-nothing, Focusing on the negatives, Catastrophizing, Negative self-labelling, Excessive need for approval, Mind reading, Should statements. Drop any negative assumptions, and think of possibilities or facts that you may have overlooked. If I make a mistake, I won't dwell on the negatives. When you challenge your negative thinking, you create new neural pathways.
If you have absorbed a negative way of thinking, then you will often come to wrong the conclusions without even knowing why. What you have learned you can unlearn and relearn something new in its place. You can learn new life skills and new ways of thinking that will lead to a better life.
External factors influence your life to some degree, but it is mostly how you interpret external factors that has the greatest impact.
If you think that you have to be perfect, small disappointments will feel like major failures.
Additionally, the CBT Worksheet Packet, with a variety of conceptualization and therapy worksheets, is available for purchase.
Each worksheet includes explanations of how to use the form, a filled-in example, and a blank copy that can be reproduced for clients.
