Thinking Well: a 5-Part Online Cognitive Restructuring Course

thinking well logo

Most people don’t realize that their own thinking is a major cause of stress. They blame events (like a traffic jam or a lost file or an argument with their boss) not realizing that it’s that their thoughts about these events that are the true source of their distress. Cognitive Restructuring helps you control your thinking - so stressful events and circumstances don’t automatically lead to stress. This 5-part online course can be found at www.stressstop.com.
