Faulty cognition

Filed under: Uncategorized — welovejohn @ 1:26 am

I remember something from psych class!

http://depression.about.com/cs/psychotherapy/a/cognitive.htm

Negative thought patterns releated to self-defeating thinking: All or nothing thinking (John feels like a total failure from one mistake), Overgeneralisation, Mental Filter, Jumping to Conclusion, emotional reasoning, mislabelling…

–> see the examples in the website

Also, to teach perspective taking and empathy- how would my friends feel if I said this to them?

Dealing with stress requires:

– recognising pressure points (John always gets angry whenever he feels inferior or disapproved by people)

– knowing coping strategies

– choosing correct coping strategy
