Mark Taylor | Canberra Psychologist | Socratic questioning: a useful tool for parents managing an anxious child

Posted on Updated on

Mark Taylor | Canberra Psychologist | Socratic questioning:

– What evidence do you had to support this idea?

– How’s strongly do you believe this now?

– On a scale of 0 to 10 where does your belief fall? What about other people?

– How does this thought affect how you feel and act?

– Can you describe experiences when this thought was not completely true?

– If a close friend felt this way, what would you tell them?

– If you told a close friend this thought, what would they say to you?

– When you feel differently in the past, what would you have said to this thought?

– Are there any distortions present in this thought?
