"Mind over Mood"
Transcript of "Mind over Mood"
Dennis Greenberger &
In order to understand your mood, you must be able to identify your thoughts that accompany these moods (Greenberger & Padesky, 1995)
We are not aware of these thoughts; they just "pop" into our heads (Greenberger & Padesky, 1995)
In order to change anything, the person must be aware of these thoughts (Greenberger & Padesky, 1995)
Questions to Help Identify Automatic Thoughts
(Greenberger & Padesky, 1995)
o What was going through my mind just before I started to feel this way?
o What does this say about me if it is true?
o What does this mean about me, my life, my future?
o What am I afraid might happen?
o What is the worst thing that could happen if it is true?
o What does this mean about how the other person(s) feel(s)/think(s) about me?
o What does this mean about the other person(s) or people in general?
o What images or memories do I have in this situation?
Exercise: Identifying Hot Thoughts
Thoughts that are connected directly to mood are called "hot thoughts" (Greenberger & Padesky, 1995)
These thoughts are strongly connected to the emotions we are experiencing at the time (Greenberger & Padesky, 1995)
By identifying these thoughts, we can alter them (Greenberger & Padesky, 1995)
Automatic thoughts include daydreaming about what you will have for lunch OR worrying about errands that need to be done (Greenberger & Padesky, 1995)
Automatic thoughts can be words, images or pictures, or memories (Greenberger & Padesky, 1995)
