Example text

Another way of examining the validity of a thought may be accomplished by encouraging patients to directly test their hypotheses through behavioral experiments, in conjunction with exposure techniques. As discussed in Chapter 1, the types of maladaptive cognitions show considerable differences between the disorders and can generally be classified into misconceptions due to probability overestimation, a cognitive error that occurs when a person believes that an unlikely event is likely to happen, and catastrophic thinking, a cognitive error that occurs when one exaggerates the negative outcome of a situation.

Initiating a change requires enormous motivation and courage, because the strategies to overcome the problems are typically difficult, painful, or distressing. In addition, the person cannot be certain whether the therapeutic strategies will, in fact, result in the desired consequences. Therefore, the treatment goal has to be desirable and achievable in order for the patient to be ready for change and to fully engage in treatment. This readiness for change can be enhanced by conducting a cost-benefit analysis of having the problem and comparing it with a cost-benefit analysis of being free from the problem.

Treatment can then become a struggle between therapist and patient, rather than a collaborative process. In order to avoid this, the therapist responds to resistance or ambivalence expressed by the patient not with confrontation, but with understanding and empathy with the goal to explore alternative perspectives from the patient. The change strategies have to be initiated by the patient, not the therapist. Resistance from the patient is to be expected. As a response to this resistance, the therapist typically engages patients in discussion to explore ways to resolve this ambivalence by discussing problem solving strategies while at the same time validating the patient’s concerns, using open-ended questions to invite new perspectives and facilitate problemsolving strategies.
