Cognitive Distortions (Part 1)

The Mindful Kind Cognitive Distortions (part-1) Rachael Kable

Hello and welcome to episode 182 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

In this episode, I'm really excited to chat about cognitive distortions, including what they actually are, where the concept came from and some examples of different types of cognitive distortions. 

Here are the 5 types of cognitive distortions shared in this episode:

  • All-or-nothing thinking

  • Overgeneralisation

  • Mental filter

  • Disqualifying the positive

  • Jumping to conclusions (mind reading and fortune telling)

Here are some great references and links for further reading:
