Managing Stress: The ABC Model
Most of us tend to think that challenging events occur and they automatically trigger a fight/flight response, however this is not the whole story. There is another stage that happens after the event and influences whether the event will trigger the fight/flight response. Dr Albert Ellis, founder of a form of talking therapy called Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (very similar to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), identified the role that our thoughts, beliefs and self-talk play in triggering the fight/flight response. He called this the A+B=C equation.
