Emotions as Temporary Visitors

Emotions as Temporary Visitors


Externalization is a powerful therapeutic technique that allows individuals to detach from their emotions and thoughts, viewing them as separate entities or 'temporary visitors' rather than intrinsic aspects of their identity. This approach is often used in various forms of therapy, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), narrative therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). By externalizing emotions and thoughts, individuals can gain a fresh perspective, develop emotional regulation skills, and effectively manage challenging feelings.

The 'Temporary Visitors' provides an easy-to-understand worksheet to present externalization to individuals.
