AbstractDo cognitive-behavioural clinical psychologists in training manifest the flowing of freshening up automatic thoughts or just repetitive streams of maladaptive thoughts? Three female cognitive-behavioural clinical psychologists in training took part in the eight sessions of training of personal and professional development. Each session comprised an individual activity of expressive arts and a written report on one’s unique mental experience with the activity. Qualitative data obtained from differing sources (Written Reports of Reflection and The Three Columns Thought Records) were triangulated in search of convergence and systematically confirmed the theory that thought is brought into existence from one’s past knowledge known that recapitulates itself. Cognitive-behavioural clinical psychologists in training did not manifest streams of pleasantly new or different automatic thoughts, but just old conditioned flows of thoughts of incompetence, amateurish and recollections of the past, so nothing new, novel, or refreshing.
