1. This integrative approach emphasizes the individual’s active role in the restructuring process. Through self-awareness and mindfulness (facilitated by neurophenomenology), individuals can consciously identify and modify their thought patterns.
2. The dynamic systems perspective suggests that cognitive restructuring is not a static ‘end state’ but rather a fluid and ongoing process, constantly evolving in response to the individual’s experiences and interactions with the environment.
3. Predictive coding theory emphasizes the adaptive nature of our cognition, implying that cognitive restructuring can be seen as an optimization process where the brain continuously updates its predictions and beliefs to minimize discrepancies between expected and actual sensory inputs.
4. The embodied cognitive ecology perspective highlights the importance of the physical body and environment in cognitive processes. This suggests that interventions for cognitive restructuring may benefit from considering not only mental strategies but also physical and environmental ones, such as relaxation techniques, changes in physical posture, and modifications of one’s environment.
