This podcast for everyone and anyone! Why? Because everyone needs to be able to identify the 15 common cognitive distortions that they may be struggling with or others are struggling with in their lives.
The topic of cognitive distortions is for everyone. Pastor Brad identifies 15 common cogitative distortions. These distortions are widespread. These distortions are not necessarily connected to mental illness or mental disorders, but certainly, these distortions can easily exasperate a mental illness or mental disorder.
Aaron Beck first purposed the theory behind cognitive distortions, and it was David Burns who was responsible for popularizing them with common names and examples of these distortions which is what Brad covers in this Part 1 of a two part edition of Fresh Hope for Mental Health: “Cogitative Distortions and How to Overcome Them.”
Here are the 15 cognitive distortions that Pastor Brad discusses in this podcast:
- Polarized thinking/black or white thinking
- Jumping to conclusions
- Control fallacies
- Fallacy of fairness
- Emotional reasoning
- Fallacy of change
- Global labeling
- Always being right
- Heaven’s reward fallacy
