POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY FOR OVERCOMING DEPRESSION Miriam Akhtar
If you think you have depression, or suffer from persistent low moods, positive psychology could be the solution you're looking for. This young branch of psychology is the study of what it takes to feel good, function well and flourish. It uses evidence based techniques proven to increase happiness and well-being, and thereby reduce the symptoms of depression. As you practise these simple yet highly-effective exercises, you will find your mood lifts naturally, your confidence, resilience, positivity and strength grow and your outlook becomes more optimistic. These strategies come from the author's professional practice as a positive psychologist and coach, her background as a journalist and as someone who has suffered from depression herself.
