Chapter 6 of Unified Protocol for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders: Workbook teaches us to put our emotional experience in context by examining what happens before and after we feel a strong emotion. First, we look for patterns in the situations or events that trigger emotions. Next, we continue to break-down our emotional response into thoughts, physical sensations, and behaviors. Finally, we look at the consequences for how we respond to our emotions, both in the short term and in the long term. The way we respond in the midst of an emotional response can have consequences for the emotions we feel in the future, and this understanding may help motivate us to make changes in the way we’re currently coping.
