Description

Learned Optimism shows us how to stop automatically assuming guilt, how to get out of the habit of seeing the direst possible implications in every setback, and how to be optimistic.

Boost your mood and your immune system with healthful thoughts.
Help your children to practice the thought patterns that encourage optimism.
Break the "I-give-up" habit with Dr. Seligman's ABC techniques.
