An outdated and mostly useless methodology which is entirely based on the mistaken belief that individuals’ chronic negative emotions are legitimate. They are not. Labeling those states as ‘depression’, ‘OCD’, or anything else only makes the situation worse. In reality they are nothing but bad habits learned in childhood. Listening to someone drone on and on about some unhappiness they experience chronically is not helpful. Instead it is enabling and reinforcing.

It is true that someone can have an isolated situation that results in genuine unhappiness, but any chronic negative emotion is not real. This is what should be explained to individuals with the bad luck (which is most people to some degree) to have this dysfunction. If they understood it was a bad habit perpetuated by feel-think they could, instead practice think-feel and, let it go. Of course they would have to be willing to give up the second-hand love they get from others who perpetually offer them some sort of payoff for being unhappy. Anyone who reads this, is able to get it, and actually wants to get better should read “Conscious Neuroplastic Mediation: The Next Step in the Evolution of Human Conscious” by James LaFerla for a description of specific techniques to use.
Psychology is an outdated and mostly useless methodology.
