37:45Donald Meichenbaum With this discussion, we began to uncover Anna's story of how her core schemes are or beliefs that she is worthless and a total failure had developed and how she learned to engage in depressive forms of thinking such as seeing things as black or white and magnifying negative events. 38:05Donald Meichenbaum In the eighth session, Anna continued to discuss the relationship she had with her father and its ongoing impact. She was able to put into words, perhaps for the first time, her anger toward him. 38:15SESSION 9 Anna Well, it's been better this week, I think, uhm.
