This video showcases a role-play demonstration of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in which a therapist helps an individual manage their anxiety and negative thoughts related to job interviews. The therapist introduces the concept of the ABC model of CBT, where A stands for Activating Event, B stands for Beliefs, and C stands for Consequences. The therapist guides the individual through identifying automatic thoughts and underlying beliefs driving negative thought patterns, and helps them reframe their beliefs using evidence from past successes and failures. The therapist also emphasizes the importance of behavior activation, encouraging the individual to seek out job training and support from friends.
The video demonstrates a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) role-play between a therapist and a patient. The therapist helps the patient reframe their negative thoughts into more positive ones to improve their overall success without putting pressure on them to succeed every time. Together they identify the patient's emotions and thoughts during a scenario and assign homework to help the patient improve their thought patterns. The therapist also encourages the patient to practice the "My ABC" technique of externalizing their thoughts, which involves writing down an event that occurred, the feelings that arose, the behavior that occurred, and what they want to think instead. The therapist concludes the session by reassuring the patient and indicating a willingness to meet with them again.
