People who experience intense anxiety, worry, obsessions, and depressive thinking are often seen to apply very consistently and predictable judgments or appraisals (i.e., "automatic thoughts") in situations they find difficult.


A "Cognitive Restructuring" approach in therapy treats the patient’s extreme, catastrophic, or irrational thoughts as “theories” to be tested, challenged, and disproved through goal setting and exposure-based exercises.  Over time and as a result of the patient's experiential learning, such irrational thinking is gradually countered or replaced by more rational, realistic, and accurate thoughts about a particular situation.
