Cognitive Behavioral Triangle Worksheets

Recommend this ResourceEmail
The three points of the CBT Triangle demonstrate how thoughts, feelings, and actions all interact. Use these worksheets to help students see that changing their thoughts can change their feelings.

Price: $2.50

     The three points of the “CBT triangle” include the thoughts, feelings, and actions that follow an event.  Something happens...we have a thought about it...which makes us feel a certain way...and then we react.  Many kids (and adults) think that the event itself creates their feelings, but it’s really their interpretation of the event that does so.  Helping them develop an awareness of the thought process that’s actually creating their feelings can help disrupt a negative behavioral cycle.


-brief instructions

-two sample worksheets with examples provided

-four worksheet variations so you can choose the one that best fits your student’s understanding:
