Cognitive conceptualization

leia aqui em português.

The cognitive conceptualization, or cognitive map, is an evaluation tool focused on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It is a strategy of understanding the cognitive processes, which allows, in an objective, organized and didactic way, to define more assertive strategies for the therapeutic process.

By practice, and also by the influence of the times of the technical course of electrotechnical, I end up making the cognitive maps of the patients, not only inform a written organization of the notes about the reports brought by the patient but also, in the form a flowchart rather didactic.
The cognitive conceptualization is formed by the data brought by the patients. These data are organized in terms of central beliefs, underlying beliefs, automatic thoughts, and behaviors and emotions.

This separation of the cognitive elements requires good theoretical knowledge and some experience because to recognize this type of information and to know in which category belongs is not an easy task. The content is presented by the patient in the form of a structured conversation. That is, a conversation organized through specific outbreaks. This helps to separate the issues, but recognizing the meta-conversation and its structural elements is not simple at all.

The didactic organization of these cognitive structures, when presented to the patient, allows immediate insight into the difficulties and their origins. The intention is twofold: first, from the beginning of the therapeutic process, to make the individual responsible for his transformation process. But also, give it autonomy so that it is always free to walk alone, without relying on the therapist for the continuity of the process.

In my practice, I usually hire that, the first four queries will be used for this. An investigation of key points in the past and the present so that a cognitive map can be constructed that illustrates, how the cognitive structures are organized, how they act, and especially where and how we need to begin acting in therapy so that present as soon as possible.

In the fifth session, I give feedback presenting literally a map, in the form of a flowchart, of cognitive functioning. Together with the patient, we correct the flaws, add details, and decide how we will act from the next session to achieve the expected results.
