Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Workshop
In this workshop, we have discussed how thoughts and perceptions affect mood. You have seen how the concepts of cognitive-behavioral therapy can help you to change your mood by responding to your Automatic Thoughts and changing the way you think. Hopefully, you have identified which Thinking Styles tend to get you into trouble when you experience excessive distress. Remember to be patient with using your Automatic Thought Records. It takes a little time to get the hang of it, but you can do it with some practice. You can do things to help improve your mood!
You may wish to record your progress using a Daily Mood Chart. This will help you keep track of important factors in your life so that you can monitor your progress with doing things that might help improve your mood. Compare your charts from week to week. Download a Daily Mood Chart as a .pdf file.
