What Challenging Beliefs Worksheet ?

Core Beliefs are the decisions an individual takes about themselves, the world, and their future. These decisions are based entirely on what they have learned through life experiences and what meaning they have attached to those experiences, their past experiences shape today’s thinking patterns and decisions.The negative automatic thoughts if not dealt and catered properly,  form our negative schemas that end up making our core beliefs.

How will Challenging Beliefs Worksheet  help

Thoughts are challenged and examined by providing evidence. When the evidence that underlies core beliefs is challenged, the core beliefs can be changed. If the information or the evidence that has been provided favours the core belief then that evidence is given attention but when that is against the core belief, it tends to be ignored.

 Instructions for the Challenging Beliefs Worksheet 

Core beliefs are convictions instead of realities. This worksheet aims at making its clients aware of their core beliefs and carefully review the evidence for and against the core belief.
