Cognitive Restructuring literally means changing your thoughts. -Unhooking -Cost vs. Benefit to holding the distressful thoughts -Dispute using -Facts -Alternate explanations -Exceptions -Alternate perspectives (How would your best friend describe the situation? What solutions would your best friend offer?) -Evaluate probabilities -Focus on what you can change (Your behaviors, Your emotional reactions, Your perception) -Distress tolerant thoughts -What would you tell someone else -“Nobody would want to be in a relationship with me because I am too broken”
