This podcast for everyone and anyone!  Why?  Because everyone needs to be able to identify the 15 common cognitive distortions that they may be struggling with or others are struggling with in their lives.  The topic of cognitive distortions is for everyone.  Pastor Brad identifies 15 common cogitative distortions. These distortions are widespread.  These distortions are not necessarily connected to mental illness or mental disorders, but certainly, these distortions can easily exasperate a mental illness or mental disorder.  Aaron Beck first purposed the theory behind cognitive distortions, and it was David Burns who was responsible for popularizing them with common names and examples of these distortions which is what Brad covers in this Part 1 of a two part edition of Fresh Hope for Mental Health: “Cogitative Distortions and How to Overcome Them.” Here are the 15 cognitive distortions that Pastor Brad discusses in this podcast: Filtering Polarized thinking/black or white thinking Overgeneralization Jumping to conclusions Catastrophizing Personalization Control fallacies Fallacy of fairness Blaming Shoulds Emotional reasoning Fallacy of change Global labeling Always being right Heaven’s reward fallacy After listening to this podcast, we encourage you to email us at info@FreshHope.us with a comment or question that we will share on our next podcast.   If you are listening to this podcast on iTunes, we encourage you to leave a comment regarding the podcast.
