Learn how to use thought stopping for reducing obsessive worries. Barbara Lester, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, describes how to use thought stopping, a proven technique to stop obsessive worrying. Thought stopping involves stopping yourself when obsessive worries arise by telling yourself to stop, snapping a rubber band on your wrist, and then substituting a pleasant thought, memory or image in the place of the obsessive thought. This is an easy to use, evidence based, technique to stop dwelling on obsessive, unproductive worry thoughts.
