Due to the positive feedback I've received for the Food Allergy Mindset worksheet I shared a few months ago, I've decided to publish additional worksheets that I've created. (I'll be publishing them over time rather than all at once.)
These worksheets are useful tools for adults, parents, older kids/teens, and even medical professionals and mental healthcare providers to share with their patients.
Food Allergy Thinking Traps
The next interactive worksheet I'm sharing is one that focuses on thinking traps.
What are thinking traps?
Thinking traps, or cognitive distortions, are thought patterns that often lead us to feel anxiety, worry or self-doubt. They can make us care too much what others think, doubt our own abilities, think outcomes will always be negative, and often derail us from using healthy skills/tools that actually help us navigate situations. (Check out some common thinking traps examples listed on Anxiety Canada Youth as a reference.)
For food allergy-specific examples, as well as an interactive worksheet you can use to examine and challenge your own thinking traps, check out the Food Allergy Thinking Traps activity worksheet below. (Offered in two downloadable formats)
You can find the other Food Allergy Mental Health worksheets here:
Stay tuned for additional worksheets and resources
that will be shared over time!
In addition to publishing them via this Food Allergy Counselor website (in the Resource Section), I will also share them via the Food Allergy Counselor Directory & Website Facebook page, as well as my Twitter and Instagram accounts.
