Chapter 5 outlines the third session of the treatment program. This session focuses on automatic thoughts (ATs) and rational responses (RRs), and discusses labelling distortions (such as all-or-nothing thinking, catastrophisation, and disqualifying the positive), and rational responses to these distortions. A visualization practice script is used to help reduce general levels of stress.
