Behavior Reinforcement

Reinforcement means rewarding a behavior so that it happens more often. There are two types of reinforcement, positive and negative. Related to reinforcement, positive does not mean “good” and negative “bad.” Instead, positive means that something desirable is added following a behavior, and negative means that something aversive is removed following a behavior.

Types of Mindfulness practices is Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)

It’s important to point out to clients that it’s okay to change mindfulness practices to better suit their needs. In the counting breaths exercise, for example, some people like to include both the inhalation and exhalation in each count. Some people have trouble seeing their thoughts in clouds and find that they hear their thoughts rather than see them. For these clients, I direct them to simply let themselves hear the thought, and then label it: There’s a thought about work… There’s anxiety… There’s a thought about the weather… and so on. As long as clients are getting the main point of the exercise—counting breaths, observing thoughts, and so on—it doesn’t matter if they change it a bit to suit their needs. Plus, giving them this flexibility makes it more likely that they’ll practice.… Read More Types of Mindfulness practices is Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)

Altering Negative Thought Patterns – CBT

If an instant mood swing does happen, it means that you have experienced an “automatic thought.” Most automatic thoughts are instant negative responses. Again, be aware and ask yourself: –

  • Am I now thinking negative remarks detrimental to my self-confidence, such as “I’m useless at this,” or “that person never liked me?”
  • Look for evidence in your mind that might support why you had such an automatic negative response.
