Pessimism to Realistic Hope: A Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment Program for Depression and Self-Esteem

Description:
The most encouraging aspect about psychological helplessness is that in the overwhelming majority of cases, it is simply a bad habit that can be overcome. Extreme pessimism and psychological helplessness can be dismantled and replaced by a more constructive approach to life. The key is not to wait until a good or positive feeling comes over us, but by pro-actively doing something constructive for ourselves. Pessimism to Realistic Hope offers a two-week, systematic approach to correction in addressing depression. By disciplining the mind to follow a script that leads away from irrational thinking and self-defeating behavior, it is possible to change. Providing specific suggestions and offering hope by confronting faulty assumptions, it becomes possible to construct a rational optimism leading to the enjoyment of life.
