I’m working on a psychology discussion question and need support to help me learn.
Please read page 121 of your text about psychologist Albert Ellis and his thoughts about irrational beliefs. Look over the irrational beliefs listed here and try to find what their common elements are. To see what their common elements are is important! Also, study the concept of fallacies in Chapter 5 and compare it to the ‘Irrational Beliefs’ Albert Ellis identified. There are a lot of similarities (what are those?) — and one significant difference (what can it be)?
These ‘Irrational Beliefs’ are cognitive errors that people live by. Living by these cognitive errors can relate to depression and other psychological disorders. Discuss how these cognitive errors can adversely impact a person’s psychological well-being. Discuss any of these or others that may impact you, your psychological state, or you achieving your goals.
