Often therapists ask clients to rate their emotion on the SUDS scale (subjective units of distress) developed by Wolpe (1961; 1990), or a score on a self-report measure of a disturbed emotional state. Therapy is successful if the SUDS rating demonstrates a lower score, representing less of the emotion. According to this model, emotions differ along a continuum of their intensity of physiological arousal and phenomenological experience. Ellis (1994; Ellis and DiGiuseppe, 1993) proposed that emotions have two continua, one for the disturbed emotion and another for the nondisturbed emotion.

Perhaps it can be demonstrated that I made a mistake (although I’d better be careful not to make a rash judgment here, for it may be too soon to tell whether it was a mistake), but how is a mistake “horrible”? That I am imperfect is surely proven by my mistake, but does it follow logically, therefore, that I am worthless?
