9. Highlight the link between different ways of thinking and different ways of reacting, how important our thinking is on our decision making. 10. Reveal ABC flip chart (Flipchart 2). 11. Explain: A is the activating event, the trigger or something that happens, B is for belief or our thoughts about the event, C is the consequences, the actions we take, the behaviour we show and the resulting consequences. 12. Explore groups understanding by using an example and working through. It may be linked to an offence or an event that they can understand (someone staring at you in the street or use another scenario from above). 13. Discuss what we mean by ‘acting without thinking’ or ‘things just happening’. Highlight that impulsive behaviour is actually acting on our first thought and that we always think before we act. 14. Tell the group that the following exercise will look at this in more detail. Learning points: Thinking always occurs between an event and the reaction to the event. The ABC model helps us break down and understand what effect our thinking has on our behaviour . 14

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
