Helping With Depression
Updated: Mar 5, 2019
Those who suffering from depression are more likely to notice negative stimuli and have a reduced attention to positive stimuli, strong evidence show that once negative information has entered the awareness of the depressed individuals, they have difficulty disengaging from it.
Depression is characterized by a series of negatively biased cognitive processes, impaired by the inability to detach from negative material and rumination.
Therapy addressing the process is likely to reach a maximum effective treatment, which it will involve rectifying those cognitive processes, challenging rumination which amplifies and maintain negative interpretations and impaired concentration.
