25 thoughts on “Coping With Stress: Cognitive-Behavioral Stress Reduction

  1. Whiskey Dick

    People who preach CBT have a panacea complex. When you have a hammer,
    everything looks like a nail, when you’re looking for a proscribed set of
    thought patterns, that’s all you see. Sometimes the situation is more
    complicated than that.

  2. Whiskey Dick

    CB Therapists inflict much stress upon people by insisting that anything
    that may be a perfect lens for realty is distorted, because, of course,
    they have a couple social science degrees and their cookie-cutter approach
    to mental health can’t be wrong. If you’re the kind of person that can
    resolve conflicts between instrumental rationality and systemic rationality
    by some how making yourself believe in the instrumental answer, we’re not
    the same species.

    Shaming me, rather than even making an attempt, is basically a
    self-fulfilling prophecy. I’m pretty sure a few things are true about you
    (1) you’ve spent comparatively little, if any, time in a CB therapist’s
    office (and probably not more than one), (2) you otherwise think of
    yourself of a rational person and feel aligned to CBT/REBT because of that,
    (3) you’re fairly liberal, educated and don’t have a history of “serious
    mental illness” (4) you don’t know, or completely reject, Thomas Szasz.

    It is shaming, as is labeling just about everything I’ve said so far as
    either “odd” or “distorted” especially without providing any evidence to
    that effect. If you don’t realize that, and you’re likely just to go on
    making more declarative statements like “REBT is a framework for assessing
    life situations rationally” without any (or very little) experience as to
    how it’s used in practice then, you’re right, this is a waste of out time.

    Yes, REBT is very good at causing stress. Although, to be completely fair,
    I hear it can have the opposite effect on people who are highly suggestible
    or fantasy-prone. I think there’s a few studies to that effect. It’s sad to
    me that a professional therapy exists that encourages double-think and
    exploits susceptible people to advance it’s dogma. Scientologists and even
    Raelians are much better at this. Maybe you should be talking to them? Let
    me know if this response is more on your level.

  6. Whiskey Dick

    Nothing, it’s too bad that REBT in practice doesn’t advocate assessing a
    situation rationally, on paper, with a cost-benefit analysis of different
    options. It’s a very good idea. What’s wrong is using the plot from 1984 as
    a therapeutic strategy. That’s the problem with REBT and CBT. It’s not
    about rationality, it’s about instrumental rationality or “rational
    irrationality” it’s not about epistemic rationality. Big Brother was
    instrumentally rational, that doesn’t make it right or therapeutic.

    Whoah, what is your problem? You seem kind of crazy, with your own agenda
    here. You’re very angry and nothing you have said so far, makes any sense
    at all.

  8. Glutathione PRO

    As we age we face a double whammy so to speak. Glutathione levels begin to
    drop each year after we are about 20 years old. Causing oxidative stress
    levels to run rampant, so we lose our bodies master antioxidant as we need
    it most. This makes it extremely important to supplement levels of Acetyl
    Glutathione and NAC in order to maintain health as we age.

    A great presentation on CBT or in this case CBS, cognitive behavioral
    strategies.

    I use a slightly different style in getting people to identify and change
    irrational and unhelpful patterns in thinking.

    A+ (B) = C . Activating events plus Behavioral Response equals Natural and
    logical Consequences, with Behavioral Response (B) being the product of
    beliefs, thoughts and feelings.

    I feel CBT and mindfulness really helped me to live a stress free life. I
    can’t recommend it enough. Also, my videos are designed to relax you. :)

    But unhealthy stress is not only a killer, it can cause chronic long term
    health problems on a life long basis, but an understanding of it can help
    to reduce it to a safe level.
