Psychiatry is more than just medicine…there is that whole talking part too!
Today, we welcome Dr. Ricks Warren a psychologist at the University of Michigan to talk about cognitive distortions and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). We delve into both topics to discuss what they are, how they affect a person’s mood, and how CBT works as a treatment. We also tried out some provider/patient role playing to really demonstrate how easily cognitive distortions seep into our thoughts. Hope you enjoy it!
Some resources we discussed today:
- Free online CBT: “Mood Gym”
- The Feeling Good Book by Dr. David Burns
- Self Compassion, Kristin Neff
