Default Re: The Elevator Question

"I don't consider CBT to be pathology-oriented. New ways of thinking and acting are definitely health-oriented. I hope your therapist also helped you, beyond changing undesireable self-talk, to identify visual images that you might be re-experiencing (even pre- or unconscously)...especially since you said " 'looking' for experiences and resources"! A person ought to be able to re-see, so to speak, previously 'traumatic' events and not have any undesirable feeling experiences. That goal, identifying and challenging visual imagery, is, unfortunately, not directly addressed in CBT as far as I know."

Oh my gosh, onlyl about 35 seconds remaining!
