A specific goal you set together with your coach

Much better. It is important to evaluate the likelihood of each of your alternate possibilities. Sure, you can plug in the B that you're going to suddenly going to win a zillion dollars, but that's not really going to change your mood too much unless the percentage likelihood of that actually occurring is at least moderately high. The beauty of this process is that much of the time, our beliefs that lead to anxiety (or depression for that matter) are distorted and off base. At the very least, they are hugely magnified versions of the real thing. I encourage you to try this process out with your own ABCs. Be a scientist and develop a few alternative hypotheses. What else could be true about the situation that might not be as upsetting?

In most cases, it's questionnaires about the individual biography, somatic and psychic symptoms, objects and places that trigger anxiety, frequency and intensity of problematic behavior, or the personal belief system. For example, in the last category you may be asked how much you agree to statements like Asking a question is a sign of inferiority or It's possible to earn the respect of others even without having any special talents.

A very popular test is the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II), which asks you about the extent to which 21 depressive symptoms (such as self-hate) have been present within the last 2 weeks. If you scored 50 points at the start of the therapy, and three months later the score is down to 3 points, then a behavioral therapist may draw the conclusion that you are feeling better now. But hopefully, your therapist doesn't need the help of a questionnaire to recognize this. For the diagnosis of personality disorders, many cognitive behavioral therapists like to use a test called SCID-II. This Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Axis II is based on the older DSM, but is still widely used worldwide. Your task is to answer 117 questions like Do you often find yourself `coming on' to people? There are interesting differences in the languages: the German version of this question is about if you like to dress sexy even when only going to work or to the grocery store. But don't worry if you should heavily agree to this. In other words, how can you replace that bitch of B with something more realistic and less self-sabotaging? This may seem simple, but trust me when I say that it takes some practice and that when it is used consistently, it's a crazy powerful tool. The trick is repetition. You need to use this technique so many times that it seeps into your bones. When you first start doing this, it serves as more of an intellectual exercise. The brain a nifty organ, but it's also a lazy ass one. It is great at learning new skills, grouping large bits of information, and forging new pathways. Once it's built those synaptic shortcuts, though, it can't be bothered to listen to your silly notions of change and progress. This means that you really have to beat it into submission. You need to say, Hey, asshole. Saturated fat (0 gram) 0 0 Trans fat (0 gram)

Furthermore, this self-report is only the first step in the whole diagnostics - it is followed by an interview, in which all yes answers are checked as to whether a personality disorder criterion really has been met. The crucial point here is the large room for interpretation. The coming on / sexy outfit - questions both aim at the criterion inappropriate sexual, seductive or provocative behavior when interacting with others. What kind of cleavage was a sign for a pathological tendency to seduction will be judged very differently from therapist to therapist. The diagnosis of personality disorders has a high degree of subjectivity, despite having defined criteria. Diverging diagnoses regularly occur. There are countless different psychodiagnostic tests, some of which are surprisingly expensive and cost more than 1000Euro. Their usage differs greatly among cognitive behavioral therapists. Some will give you such a big pile of paper that you will need a whole afternoon to fill it all out, while others never use any questionnaires and simply ask directly what they want to know. I don't care if you want to or not. We are going to keep thinking this way until you get the hang of it.

Once you force feed it knowledge like that consistently over time, you will internalize the process and apply it to your life instantly without even realizing it. Real change can happen using this technique, I promise. So here's the thing. This technique is effective, but not it's not perfect for everyone. We are all different and for some of us, our anxiety is not cognitively driven (driven by thoughts), but it is somatically (physically) driven. What good is working through the ABCs if you can't even identify any particular activating event? Sometimes your heart and mind seem to start racing for no apparent reason and you are left sitting in the parking lot trying to cool your damn jets before you can even get out of the car. If you are like that, then this next article is for you.

Once a diagnosis has been made, the next topic of interest is usually the question: Why do I have this psychic disorder?

A very general answer exists, that is often given when no other is at hand: the biopsychosocial model. The basic idea here is that a mental illness is the consequence of several negative factors coming together. Bio = physical factors, such as genetic vulnerability, damage to the brain, hormonal disturbances, etc Psycho = mental factors, such as personality, belief system, automatic dysfunctional thoughts, inner conflicts, etc Social = environmental factors, such as family relationships, social integration, traumatic experiences, etc But technically, this model doesn't really provide an explanation about how psychic disorders develop. It only states that all sorts of things could be relevant, and that there are probably multiple ways by which it might happen. But how exactly? If you thought your mind had a monopoly on screwing you over, you were sorely mistaken. Your body seems to be in cahoots with the boss upstairs and has its very own contributions to that lovely beast we call anxiety. Don't worry if you are one of those lucky people who seem to have anxiety that is primarily driven by physical symptoms. You're not S. We just need to approach things a little differently. Physical anxiety symptoms vary from person to person, but there are some that tend to be pretty consistent: Pounding heartbeat Shortness of breath or hyperventilation Sour stomach Feeling of pressure on chest Vitamin B 12 25 35 Phosphorous 20 30
