Doubting yourself is not necessarily a bad thing. The mere thought of jumping off a bridge doesn’t mean you would ever do it, and the occasional worry, doubt, or catastrophic “what-if” isn’t a big deal if it doesn’t last. Rather, it is when these worries, doubts and what-ifs turn into a never-ending wave of negativity, it will start to get in the way of you living your life and enjoying yourself, which if left unchecked can undermine your self-worth, erode good moods and increase your risk for depression.
This third seminar introduces you to the nature and impact of negative thoughts and about different types of negative thoughts and how to identify leaps and thinking traps in how you think about yourself, people you live and work with and the world around you.
In this seminar, you will also learn about a number of evidence-based skills and strategies that have been used by mental health professionals to help people quickly and effectively manage their intrusive and negative thoughts.
