During attending a psychotherapy session with my clients, I posted the followingquestion," What was going through your mind at the moment when you got to themeeting/class late?The client replied, I'm always late. I'm undisciplined. My colleagues will look downon me."Let's look at another example,"What was going through your mind at the moment when you fail your exam? Break up with your partners?""I am a failure. I am worthless. Why I can't do it!"The examples above shows the Negative automatic thoughts (NAT). What is NATs?NATs are situation-specific and involuntarily "pop into" our mind when we areexperiencing emotional distress such as depression or anxiety. The concept appearsin our mind and hard to turn off. NATs always lie outside immediate awareness butcan quickly brought to the client's attention.In general, underlying assumptions and rules guide behaviour, set standards andprovide rules to follow. Unfortunately, these assumptions and rules are often notexpressed among ourselves. Most of us do not realise we have underlying assumption.The most common underlying assumption appear when we have the statement, "If....then" construction, and rule are usually expressed in "must" and "should" statements.
