Health Anxiety Thought Record
Individuals with health anxiety experience clinically significant distress associated with health concerns. This thought-challenging record enables clients to address negative automatic thoughts, worries, and predictions associated with their health.
The Health Anxiety Thought Record targets the key concerns of patients with health anxiety (hypochondriasis). The thought record includes space to record triggers, emotions, and negative/intrusive thoughts. Clients are then encouraged to challenge their negative thinking with rational responses.
