CBT Part 2 - Untwisting Your Thinking

The other day, I wrote a little about cognitive distortions. These are unhelpful thoughts that we all tend to have, that are not rational, and can likely cause negative feelings. Most of us do not pay attention to the way we are talking to ourselves; our internal dialogue. Identifying these unhelpful thought patterns is a first step in feeling better. https://www.drericafels.com/building-pathways-for-positive-change/2019/1/16/intro-to-the-cbt-perspective

Today, I present an antidote. Check it out and check yourself!

Launched, Living, and Out in the Universe

Hello,

I’m a lifelong learner, nature enthusiast, wife, mother, daughter, sister, and psychologist, living happily, in sunny Los Angeles, California. I’ve decided to start a blog to share my knowledge, and to hopefully help others live happier, more fulfilled lives. In this blog, I’ll share information, tips and tricks that I find useful, as well as relevant research, products, and experiences that have impacted my life. I’ve been studying psychology since 1996, obtained my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 2005, went on to study Neuropsychology in a post-doctoral fellowship, and have been licensed as a psychologist in California since 2007. In my practice I integrate information from several fields, including, but not limited to: neuroscience, spirituality, cognitive behavioral psychology, positive psychology, education and parenting research, to help guide others on a path towards optimal well-being.

With gratitude, Dr. Erica Felsenthal
