The Stories we Tell Ourselves: The Process of Re-appraising our Thoughts

Read the EIP Blog

This month, humanworks Rehabilitation Consultant Darby Eakins gives us the tools to reassess the often inaccurate stories we tell ourselves, and exercise reappraisal to help us stop ruminating on situations we initially perceive as stressful.
