Part II: Fixing Your Cognitive Distortions
In this edition of Fresh Hope for Mental Health Pastor Brad looks at eight different ways to “fix” your cognitive distortions (which were covered in Part 1: 15 Cognitive Distortions). These are eight different ways to change your “thinking default settings” in order to get rid of your stikin’ thinkin’.
Aaron Beck first purposed the theory behind cognitive distortions, and it was David Burns who was responsible for popularizing them with common names and examples of these distortions.
Here are the 15 cognitive distortions that Pastor Brad discusses in this podcast:
- Polarized thinking/black or white thinking
- Jumping to conclusions
- Control fallacies
- Fallacy of fairness
- Emotional reasoning
- Fallacy of change
- Global labeling
- Always being right
- Heaven’s reward fallacy
