Usually saying something like the following can help clarify these points in the client’s mind: “OK, you thought that you were a bad parent. We’ll put that belief in the AT column. And how did that thought make you feel? ” Occasionally clients will also put words really indicative of interpretations in the emotion column. For example, a client may put “rejected” in the emotion column, but this really implies an action by someone else.

The client begins by identifying two opposing beliefs, one emotionally persuasive and maladaptive and the other at least somewhat intellectually persuasive and more desirable. The client then occupies another chair facing her original one and speaks to her now absent self to convince herself that the old core belief (for example, “I’m incompetent”) is correct. The therapist actively encourages the client to verbalise literally all the data used over the years to support her old core belief. In this way both therapist and client can ascertain which data need to be reframed in more positive ways.
