Cpt introduced me to some powerful tools, mainly this worksheet used for organizing thoughts, feelings, and cognitive distortions.
Cpt seems to take over for where CBT has gotten me but left me. Addressing stuck points, identifying automatic thoughts and feelings, and then challenging them in this structured, step by step format has been amazing…and terrifying too. I’ve never felt so vulnerable, like having a microscope inspect your thoughts and then document all the unbalanced problems. It’s difficult not to feel like a totally messed up freak with this much new awareness. No more hiding. No more saying I’m fine. I’m clearly not.
I wanted to share one of these worksheets here.
I’ll go through an example if how to fill one out later. Writings not coming easily to me today.
