All the activities are based on five well-tested principles:
We can control the way we think - based on Aaron Beck's work on ANTS (Automatic Negative Thoughts), how to challenge negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones - an important tool in depression when negative thoughts can be particularly catastrophic
Good relationships are vital to our well-being - how to consider your skills in this area and make changes so as to have a range of good relationships to help raise raising mood.
The words we use affect our mood - priming experiments have demonstrated the subtle effect that language can have on our feelings and the way we behave; how to analyse and change what we say
The mind/body relationship can be used to aid control of mood - how to use techniques such as muscle relaxation and breathing control to make a positive impact on this interaction; how best to manage aspects of effects of lifestyle (diet, sleep and so on) to best effect
The imagination can be used in positive ways - how to use the imagination as a constructive and affirmative tool.
