Anxiety Vs Truth worksheet
What is the theory behind this anxiety vs truth worksheet?
Unquestioned, false thinking can be used to characterise anxiety. We might, however, be held captive by lies about ourselves and our circumstances until we have the freedom that comes with new perspectives. Our inner voice, which is a collection of messages we’ve internalised from our communities, families, the media, etc., is typically a monotonous cycle of pointless information. CBT works on client’s cognition that helps in dealing with irrational thoughts.
How will the worksheet help?
Whenever we experience anxiety, the mind begins to generate irrational thoughts that play their role in maintaining the anxiety cycle. This worksheet will provide awareness to the client about irrational thoughts and what can be the truth that will further help in managing anxiety in a better way.
How to use the worksheet?
The therapist uses this worksheet to psychoeducate clients about irrational thoughts and how they maintain the cycle of anxiety. Therapists provide this worksheet to clients to list down their own anxious thoughts and to identify alternative truths for these thoughts.
