Cognitive distortions are thoughts that cause people to perceive reality inaccurately. Especially during difficult circumstances, these distorted thoughts can contribute to an overall negative outlook on the world and a depressive or anxious mental state. They also can damage relationships. The tricky thing about cognitive distortions is that, if you have one, you might not know it. In this workshop, you’ll learn about common cognitive distortions and become better equipped to deal with them.
