Psychology has put forward the idea that there are many different “versions” of you sitting in your head with different wants, feelings, and personalities. Based on our brain structure two main types of self emerge – predator and pray. Judaism shares as similar view that our spiritual self is also made up of different parts. This class explores how these views might complement each other and how we can better understand the internal contradictions we feel in our lives.
Weighing the evidence is a foundational CBT intervention designed to challenge negative self beliefs, personal schemas, and “what-if” rumination.
