Friendly and informal, this 12 page booklet presents a series of easy exercises to help your client rewrite problem thoughts into healthier alternatives.
Cognitive therapy workbooks tend to be long and mundane and require a hefty dose of self-analysis, as well as a running knowledge of terms like “Automatic Thought” and “Antecedents” and “Consequences.”
This little booklet is different. It’s a short, comfortable read filled with cartoons, coloring exercises, and humor. There are no complex terms to memorize. Readers are presented with scenarios and multiple choice exercises and gradually work towards rewriting their own thoughts. The final two pages take on issues that might surface when dealing with problem thoughts.
Addiction and recovery can be rough. Concentration, introspection, and self-confidence are often at a low. This little book is a gentle and fun way to work towards healing.
