Ohio State researchers demonstrate Socratic questioning in cognitive therapy

We use Socratic Questioning in our sessions, classes, and private arguments, to discover our core beliefs, to analyze our thinking, to keep our thinking accountable, and to keep each other accountable.  It is highly useful tool that vastly improves the quality of our lives, and the lives of our clients.  To learn more about our sessions, please click on the link.  If all of our interactions could start including the Socratic Method, where people would interact with questions back and forth rather than participating in an argument of ideas vying for power and domination over each other, our world would become a vastly different place, and fast.  Learning this one skill, and implementing it in your daily lives, is probably the single most important thing that you could do for yourself, your family, your community, and for your society.

“In cognitive therapy, therapists use Socratic questioning to help clients discover their own solutions to problems. Ohio State researchers Daniel Strunk, left, and Justin Braun are the first to test whether people with depression can benefit from this approach.
