Negative thinking patterns

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 1 Jan 19 in David Burns, Depression, Ten Cognitive Distortions |

  Negative thinking patterns can be immensely deceptive and persuasive, and change is rarely easy. But with patience and persistence, I believe that nearly all individuals suffering from depression can improve and experience a sense of joy and self-esteem once again.”           ~David Burns, author “Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy” […]

A reader is confused about labels and self-rating

 Rate behavior . . . not self, and you are doing good ePrime and  on the right track for doing good REBT.  This process is even more comprehensible and user-friendly if you learn something about ePrime, which is not too much of a stretch   2,452 total views, no views today Originally posted 2013-07-17 02:39:22.

Disguised “Should” statments

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sat 8 Dec 18 in Disguised shoulds, musterbation, musty thinking, ought, should statements, Why? questions |

REBT Mates, it may have been yours truly who coined the term “disguised shoulds.” Dishonest “why” questions are one of the most obvious examples. Dishonest “whys” pretend to ask for an explanation when in fact they are really making a “should” statement. 1,193 total views, no views today Originally posted 2017-01-30 21:19:36.

Disputing Overgeneralizations

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 2 Dec 18 in Disputing, overgeneralization, Ten Cognitive Distortions |

A new reader asks how to dispute an “overgeneralization“ Hi Newbie, Welcome! I often use “overgeneralization” in a loose way to mean exaggeration. However, if you are using the term in the way that Burns coined it, OVERGENERALIZATION: You see a single negative event as a never-ending pattern of defeat. You arbitrarily conclude that one […]

Do you believe your thoughts?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 2 Oct 18 in Ten Cognitive Distortions |

REBT Mates! Here is one for you.  When you are aware of  thinking (or having thunk) a thought, do you automatically assume that it is true, accurate or valid?  Or another way of framing the question, “Do you assume your thought are true and without much consideration simply act on them?  Or perhaps you have […]
