The idea of using a flashcard to deal with a "toxic" obsessive thought can be counterproductive with the flashcard becoming another ritual!I have found it more effective to expose them to their feared consequences in this case choosing the wrong job. I ask them to allow the catastrophic thoughts to surface and just to observe them as with any other exposure (the use of mindfullness techniques can aid this)
