 Review of Session 1

We learnt in Session 1:

(1) Intolerance of Uncertainty and related thoughts, emotions, and behaviours.

(2) Adaptive and maladaptive emotion regulation strategies used under uncertain situations. Given that maladaptive emotion regulation strategies are related to increasing negative emotions; we want to learn how to manage our negative emotions under uncertain situations by specifically focusing on reducing unhelpful strategies.

(3) Rumination is a maladaptive emotion regulation strategy. It is a repetitive thinking style that has negative emotions associated with it. Understanding your own rumination in uncertain situations is important. Using the ABC model to better understand an uncertain situation is the first step to conquering rumination, via a method known as Behavioural Activation.

In this session, you will learn how to battle rumination using a strategy called BEHAVIOURAL ACTIVATION.
