Testing Automatic Thoughts with Thought Records

© Copyright 1996 Christine A. Padesky, PhD /

Christine Padesky helps a depressed client explore her "hot thoughts" using the 7 column thought record.

Watch an entire therapy session with narrative commentary about each section of the thought record.

This session is a vivid demonstration of the integration of technique with a collaborative therapy alliance.

Viewers comment on the helpfulness of this video to demonstrate the pacing and timing of a therapy session when using a thought record. It has been especially helpful to see how empathic and conversational the therapy session can be even while teaching skills in a structured way.

Includes close-up shots of client and therapist notes.

Invaluable learning tool 01/02/2019
By Michela David
I am an advanced CBT therapist with over 25 years of CBT experience, and am certified with the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. I have watched Dr. Padesky's videos again and again, and find them to be incredibly helpful. This thought record video demonstrates so many important CBT skills: Dr. Padesky masterfully balances the structure of the thought record with her empathic connection to the client, and guides the client in self-discovery, navigating through a particularly challenging example where finding evidence that does not support the hot thought would challenge most therapists. In my experience, Socratic questions that encourage clients to see things from different perspectives are particularly useful, and this is clearly demonstrated here. The video also shows how effective the sharing of written material between therapist and client can be. I recommend Dr. Padesky's videos to all my trainees, including graduate students in clinical psychology and other mental health professionals. I have almost the entire collection on my bookshelf.

Excellent demonstration 12/28/2015
By Clinical Psychologist
I am an advanced CBT therapist and trainer. This video is an excellent demonstration of how a therapist can elicit automatic thoughts and teach cognitive restructuring skills for a depressed patient using the format in the book Mind Over Mood. Dr. Padesky is very directive while at the same time she highlights many general therapeutic skills such as empathy, patience, two way communication, collaboration, and affirmation of patient qualities. She also explains some key concepts related to cognitive therapy such as automatic thoughts, underlying assumptions, and core beliefs; and provides insightful commentary about responding to challenges related to working with depressed patients. I highly recommend this video for any therapist learning cognitive restructuring.
