What is CBT worst case scenario worksheet about?

People who are anxious often think about the worst possible outcome of the situation. Some degree of stress is beneficial in some situations to keep people motivated to avoid bad outcomes but most of the times when we predict the worst outcome it decreases the ability to perform well and makes us anxious for no apparent reason. 

How will the CBT worst case scenario worksheet help?

This worksheet will help you to analyse your worrisome thoughts that are due to the constant thoughts of worst case scenarios that can happen as a result of any situation. It is a powerful technique of Cognitive behavioural therapy that helps everyone to think for themselves and write the costs and  benefits of thinking about the worst outcomes. In this way it is a lot easier to let go of the worrisome thoughts and see the situation as it is rather than worrying and predicting about the future. 

Instructions on how to use CBT worst case scenario worksheet.

Write down the current situation you are in then write the outcomes and then think about the costs and benefits.
