Control behavior is the basis for cultivating children to form an optimistic attitude. To a certain extent, controlling behaviors can also help children think about causality, so that children will form a self -explanation model from failure and success. This extends the child’s view and explanation of the world.

To a certain extent, the most effective change of thinking in the process of educating children is to cultivate children’s sense of control. By helping children to build ideas and feelings to change the child’s interpretation style, and ultimately enhance children’s confidence.

Many times when others are accusing us, we naturally want to refute and think that our refutation is correct.

However, some habitual pessimistic people do not agree with them that they have habitually explaining bad things that are extremely permanent and universal, and at the same time give them disaster. And identifying negative things will occupy more than half of the development of the whole thing, and this idea has also successfully lost their confidence in hard work.

If you want to change such people, the most important thing to do is to reduce the model of negative ideas as much as possible to enhance the model of their rational ideas, so as to cultivate a model of positive ideas.

1. Use ABCDE therapy to transform negative thinking

ABCDE therapy is a way to transform negative thinking into optimistic thinking in “Living Most Optimistic Self”. Among them, A, (Adversity) represents bad things; B (Belief) represents your ideas on this incident; ENERGIZATION is stimulated.

1. First identify ABC

Identifying the ABC mode is to first identify the relationship between the thoughts and consequences of people’s brains when there is a bad thing.

For example, A Xiao Lan once made up his mind to lose weight. As a result, one day he violated the weight loss plan during the weight loss process, and ate a lot of weight gain food. This is a bad thing.

After C Xiao Lan, he thought he had destroyed the plan of weight loss and thought that he had opened a bad head, and then ate a piece of cake. This is the consequence of the bad thing. B is Xiao Lan’s view of himself. I think that I am a weak person who destroys the entire plan to lose weight, and thinks that I can’t do anything.

And such a model also reflects Xiao Lan as a pessimist.

To identify the ABC model, you need to explore what kind of emotions appeared at the time when you discovered that you had an unpleasant experience, and then what kind of thoughts did you generate. This is the operation of the entire ABC.

The meaning of refuting is to oppose the thoughts that I used to be and debate with your own ideas. When you refute the debate with your own ideas, you need to refute evidence like a detective to support your positive ideas.

For example, Xiao Lan believes that his weight loss plan has been destroyed, but if he re -calculates the calories he eats, he eats the heat. He will find that his food he gains weight is just more calories than his usual food.

If he can strengthen his exercise within a day, he can quickly consume the food he eats, and can improve his willpower. This will not only achieve the purpose of weight loss, but also achieve the willpower of exercise Purpose.
