In today’s post on Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), I’d like to cover the myth that CBT only wants you to just think positively about negative situations!
This is not true as CBT focuses on enabling people to think differently about their situation, their world, themselves, and/or their future. Rather, it is about ‘thinking realistically’ by helping people evaluate and decide whether their thoughts are in fact true, valid, realistic, and helpful to handle problem situations.
Look out for the next post then! And feel free to share any questions that you might have about CBT too.
