Levels of Processing Theories  

First wave CBT comes unstuck over the gap between logical reasoning and strong emotion. This leads to the recognition of different types or levels of processing. e.g. Hot and Cold cognition (Ellis) – and many more!

All these theories suggest 2 or more separate types of processing – the split in human cognition!

There is one direct, sensory driven, type of processing and a more elaborate and conceptual one

The same distinction can be found in the memory

Direct processing is emotional and characterised by high arousal

This is the one that causes problems – e.g. flashbacks in PTSD

The two central meaning making systems of ICS provides a neat way of making sense of this
