Reading, Berkshire ( Prsplash ) December 19, 2011 - Depression is one of the most common and most devastating psychological conditions afflicting people around the world. Depression also contributes to a number of other mental and physical ailments, draining a patient’s will to seek help and get better. Medical professionals all over the globe have shown through countless controlled studies that positive mental processes are one of the foundations of overall health. The neurochemical changes that happen when people are depressed negatively affect their behaviors, immune system, and ability to physically recover from injury and illness. Therefore, depression is not only a life threatening and devastating descent into negative feeling it is also a significant factor in physical wellbeing. True depression is a serious condition that can lead to a number of health problems. Depression affects major life decisions, often leading to dysfunctional choices that affect all of the people around the person with this devastating condition.

Various attempts at depression treatment over the decades saw varying degrees of success. However, extensive, recent studies have proven that there is indeed a reliable cure for depression. It is known as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT has been shown repeatedly to provide impressive positive results consistently when used for depression therapy, stress management, and anxiety treatment, demonstrating reliable results among a wide demographic range of patients. This type of therapy requires active participation on the part of the patient as the therapist guides him or her through targeted examinations of thought patterns, challenging thoughts that are irrational and harmful. Dr. David Purves, a pioneer of cognitive behavioral therapy, has explored new and exciting applications of this proven cure for depression and anxiety disorders. He explains that “Depression and anxiety are caused by negative thoughts leading to an underestimation of personal strengths and resource and an overestimation of threat. Once these thoughts are examined and shown to be illogical and destructive, the person can begin thinking in more logical and productive ways, thus re-training the brain to move away from depressive patterns and toward positive ones.”

While cognitive behavioral therapy is clearly the most effective method for treating depression, it is not always accessible to those who need it. Some people around the world may not have physical access to therapists who are trained in CBT, while others may not be able to get the therapy they need due to financial reasons or other circumstances. Keeping this in mind, Dr. Purves took the initiative to begin a website that offers access to computer based CBT therapy, allowing people all over the world to gain crucial information to apply proven principles to their own mental healing. Visitors to DrPurves.com will find articles and videos, including his innovative “Blues Begone” and “Mood Control” programs, that can help them to begin a path to healthy, positive thinking, and an end to depression and anxiety.
