People who self-injure have a variety of thought distortions. They typically believe that they need to be punished for past transgressions, that their bodies are ugly and unacceptable, and that the only way they can control their lives is through self-mutilation.
This set of cards helps self-injuring clients understand how to correct their distorted view of themselves and their world, and how changing their thoughts can be an integral part of changing their behaviors.
The set contains 50 cards that have common examples of dysfunctional thoughts relating to the disorder. On the back of each card is a rational response to the dysfunctional thought, as well as a behavioral assignment to reinforce rational thinking and responsible actions.
The set also includes 50 write-in cards for clients to identify their own specific dysfunctional thoughts, as well as a rational response to each thought.
Comes with a CD that contains copies of the cards to print out as worksheets, and also 12 Thought-Changing Forms to further your treatment goals. Suitable for ages 12 through adult.
