Living Well with Long Term Health Conditions 3

Tue 16 Mar 2021


Workshop 3: Thinking

Delivered by Kathrin Hicks from the University Counselling Centre

The way we think about a situation has an enormous influence on our subjective emotional experience and on our behaviour. This process is more complicated than examining supposed thinking errors or trying to “think positive.” In this session we consider different types of worry and how to respond to them and focus in particular on changing our relationship with our thoughts, rather than the content of the thoughts themselves. Being able to take a step back and observe our thinking processes rather than becoming tangled up in our thoughts can make an enormous difference to how we respond emotionally and behaviourally.

Concepts to be covered include:

  • Differentiating practical and non-practical worry
  • The concept of thinking “errors” and the degree to which this is helpful
  • Thought “fusion” and “defusion” – becoming tangled up versus untangling ourselves from our thoughts
  • Practical exercises, including in-session demonstration and practice, for managing different types of worry

Joining instructions will be provided on your booking confirmation email.
