GUIDE: Recognsing and Responding to Faulty Thinking Patterns

This guide explores four common faulty thinking patterns and provides you with ideas about how to address them if your child experiences them.

It covers:

  • Mental filtering
  • Disqualifying the positives
  • Catastrophising
  • Shoulds and oughts

These thinking patterns are very common in children, young people and adults who are struggling with anxiety, low mood or low self-esteem.  You’ve probably fallen into these thought traps yourself in the past too.

Here is a link to a downloadable version of this guide.
