Today was my first day of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Basically a form of therapy, in a group setting, that is supposed to help you identify unhelpful thinking and theoretically change the way you think, therefor change your behaviors (google CBT or cognitive behavioral therapy) I’ve been reading about it leading up to this 5 day class, and I have to say I’m quite optimistic that it could work. I mean, in paper it seems pretty logical.
The group is an interesting mix. I’m the only officer, but there is a mix of races, sexes, gay and straight and events leading to our being there. I will say we do share some things in common, which is why I believe is one of the core reasons they do this in a group setting. It makes you see that you’re not alone. For being a group of complete strangers we all opened up and shared quite a bit.
I’m looking forward to the remainder of the week.
Side note: there are 8 total people, and two of us are gay. I had the other guy pegged before he even opened his mouth.
