As a result of these distortions, the automatic thinkings arises which lead to the emergence of a number of dysfunctional emotions and often behaviors associated with these emotions. Spontaneously occured automatic thoughts, related to problematic behaviors or disturbing emotions are accepted without any hesitations are existed at the top of the mind. In the cognitive therapy, it is suggested that the focus of the therapy should be the individual's thoughts and beliefs, because some individuals may have the potential to destroy-reduce other¸s experiences with their ability to influence them with their own experiences.
