the MoodGYM

Someone over at the polyweekly forums posted a link to an online Cognitive Behavior Therapy course called the the MoodGYM. I've been intrigued about Cognitive Behavior Therapy for awhile, since suburban_gypsy talks about it often. My understanding is that it is a pragmatic approach to dealing with destructive thought and behavior patterns.

The Mood Gym is a flash course that includes some diagnostic quizzes, explains some of the common patterns that people fall into, and provides tools for combating them. It is pretty lengthy (and a tad on the cheesy side,) so I wouldn't necessarily recommend it unless you either have an interest in cognitive behavior therapy, or struggle with depression or anxiety.

Here are some highlights for those of you who don't feel like going through the whole course. (You need to create a new account here before you can view these pages.)

* David Burns' Warped Thoughts
* Hints for Unwarping
* "Playing the Reporter (worksheet)
* Increase positive self-interpretations (worksheet)
* Testing thoughts & interpretations (worksheet)
* Experiment to prove or disprove your interpretations
* "Self-Talking"
