Cognitive reappraisal techniques
Mon Jan 24, 2022 · 167 words

Cognitive reappraisal techniques are a cognitive change strategy. They’re used to regulate emotion and represent ways to reinterpret events through your own lens.

This is different from suppressing an emotion which involves keeping a lid on the emotion and hiding the emotion from others.

Here’s my checklist to remind myself to do this when intense emotions surface:

  1. Observe your intense emotions.
  2. Orient yourself by re-regulating.
  3. Decide which reappraisal strategy to use.
  4. Act on your decision.
