From the Book: Automatic Thought Records
One of the primary tools used in cognitive therapy (Bennett-Levy 2003), the automatic thought record is used for practicing the types of challenges you worked on previously. The way the thought record works for OCD is that you document situations that trigger you, identify the automatic thoughts the mind is picking up from the OCD, and shift them toward a more objective (and essentially more mindful) stance.
The most important thing to remember about using the automatic thought record as a cognitive therapy tool is that the goal is not reassurance. The goal is to not do compulsions and to embrace mindful acceptance of the triggering situation.
