>But, is it possible to think they're a good idea? For example, the woman in my example could allow herself to think the disturbing thoughts and realise that nothing bad actually happens as a result, the thoughts are being allowed to occur as 'exposure'. She's not accepting them as 'good', she's accepting them as harmless.

When you label an anxiety producing thought as 'good', then the thought loses more power because, well, having the thought is considered a good thing - more than just harmless.

In my first exposure I was encouraged to imagine my family as I cut them to pieces with a chainsaw while laughing like an insane man. I was made to reimagine my ideations as a source of humor-something good, rather than something dreadful or simply harmless.
