Posted on Updated on

Teen Mental Health – Self-Esteem
– manifests itself in the form of young people having a lot of negative thoughts about themselves, linked with negative emotions such as sadness, anxiety, guilt, anger
– this can lead to feelings of depression
– can affect social relationships
– can affect school performance

CBT:
– thinking (Cognitions) & actions (behaviours) affect how we feel (emotions)
– learn to recognise unhelpful thinking styles (also known as cognitive distortions or dysfunctional thinking styles)
– awareness of these allows for conscious re-evaluation so as to feel better & think more realistically
