How To Think More Effectively Using CBT

Hui Ting Kok

Are you dealing with difficult emotions and find yourself getting emotional very easily or lashing out frequently? You may well be helped by CBT.

CBT or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a type of intervention that helps individuals learn how to identify and change unhelpful thoughts that have a not-so-helpful influence on emotions and behavior.

In this episode, Christie Kim from Bridges Mental Health and I discussed ways to reframe unhelpful thought patterns such as catastrophizing, fortune telling, mind-reading, and jumping to conclusions. We explore the pitfalls of making assumptions and offer tools to communicate with ourselves, our partners and others more effectively.
