Thank you for completing the Alternative View worksheet.
Remember that the Alternative View worksheet is an important take-home activity to complete.
It reminds you to focus on the alternative, more balanced core beliefs and views of the world, instead of relying on your old, problematic and negative views.
Make sure that you include all the evidence you come across that supports your new core belief — don’t ignore any of it.
Have you noticed any flow-on effects of this activity on your mood or alcohol/other drug use?
Looking back on the worksheet for the past week — what are your thoughts on all this evidence — is it believable?
Do you think it is important, or is your “depressed voice” trying to tell you that this stuff doesn’t matter?
Thanks for completing the Alternative View worksheet for the past week, and we would like you to fill in another one over the next week.
