A “stuck point” is a term used in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to describe thoughts or beliefs that limit growth, progress, and recovery. These thoughts act as barriers, blocking the journey toward mental and emotional well-being. This worksheet explains common types of “stuck points” such as mind-reading, personalization, “should” statements, and so on. People are asked to identify their dysfunctional thinking and how it affects their emotions and behaviors. (0124. CBT. cognitive behavior therapy, irrational thoughts).
