How can we begin to dissect and utilize cognitive behavioral therapy by incorporating the word P.E.A.C.E. Here is how we can break and begin to simplify this when times seem to fall out of place. P is broken down by utilizing positive self-talk. For example; continuous negative self-talk can decrease low esteem and low self-confidence. Therefore; beginning to implement this practice can help in creating a platform for improving self-esteem and low self-confidence. E can be utilized to examine the evidence. Do you experience symptoms of anxiety or depression? The evidence is simply the symptoms associated with anxiety and depression. This is a clear sign in which; the evidence needs to seek assistance before the symptoms become unmanageable. Furthermore; being able to discuss your evidence with your therapist and or psychiatrist is beneficial in your road to recovery. A is accepting the new reality of what is now part of your life. Learning to manage your symptoms and not allow the symptom to control you, is now your new reality. Ensure that you are not defining yourself as the anxiety, but rather learning to adapt with an additional part of you. C is broken down to help change the focus. Are you struggling with staying on tasks or keeping your goals for the day? For example, let’s say you are struggling to get things done, make small goals for the day to help stay on task. E can help experiment with a different type of coping skills and create an action plan to help maintain our goals for seeking therapy. Don’t be afraid to reach out and get help. Remember, the first your step can be in creating an action plan is getting the help. P.E.A.C.E
