Anxiety what If Worksheet
What is the theory behind this anxiety what if worksheet?
Cognitive distortions are internal mental biases or filters that exacerbate our worry and increase anxiety. One of the cognitive distortions known as catastrophizing is the tendency to assume the worst in every situation, regardless of how unlikely it is. What-if queries are frequently accompanied by this cognitive error. To address these faulty cognitions, cognitive restructuring, a CBT tool, is used.
