What is The Fight-or-Flight CBT Worksheet?

The physiological and psychological response triggered when encountering a stressful situation is termed as Fight – or – Flight response. Our body releases hormones that prepare it to either stay and face the danger or run away due to stress. The hormonal stimulus then prompts several physiological changes that help handle the threat and increase survival chances.

How will the Fight-or-Flight CBT Worksheet help?

This worksheet will help you know more about the Fight – or – Flight response by identifying the physiological and psychological aspects triggered by any significant threat like an attack on your life or a minor event such as giving a presentation. 

While it is particularly useful for survival, this response may not always be accurate; it can occur even in the absence of an actual threat. By getting to know about these responses, you will be able to handle stress more efficiently. This worksheet will help you learn more about Fight – or – Flight response to minimize false triggers.
