Online: Positive thinking

Get rid of negative thoughts

Are you someone who immediately thinks of the worst? Always has a pessimistic outlook? Engages in catastrophic thinking? Or do you avoid situations out of fear because these situations have already turned into life-threatening dangers (in your thoughts...)? Catastrophic thinking can cause a lot of stress. A catastrophic thinker believes that something very unpleasant or terrible is going to happen as a result of something they did or neglected. Catastrophic thinking can also involve fearful thoughts about the world,or loved ones.

In this course Positive Thinking:

  • You'll learn to systematically analyze situations by gaining insight into your own thoughts, especially the influence they have on your behavior.

Do you often think something bad is going to happen? Do you sometimes make things seem much worse or more serious than they are? Then you might be a catastrophizer. Everyone deals with these kinds of thoughts from time to time. Does positive thinking not come naturally to you? If so, this positive attitude course is just what you need.

You want to start this course because, like everyone else, you sometimes have to deal with stressful situations. These are moments when your emotions take control, and you may not behave as you'd like—times when you become angry, irritated, or just miserable. If you struggle to let go of the emotion, worry constantly, or consistently blame yourself, it can be challenging and drain a lot of (negative) energy. If this sounds familiar, it's time to take action, and you can. You can gain control over your emotions, whether you're used to showing them or not. Do you want to feel less insecure and appear more self-confident? Rational Effectiveness Training (RET) is a highly effective method to help you achieve this.
