In the last few decades many psychologists have encouraged the view that constantly analysing and expressing our emotions is a good thing. Dr Susan Nolen-Hoeksema challenges this assumption in her breakthrough new book on conquering negative thinking. Encouraged by a fast-paced, self analytical culture, women often spend countless hours dwelling on negative ideas, feelings and experiences. Dr Nolen-Hoeksema calls this 'overthinking' and her groundbreaking research shows that an increasing number of women are doing this too much and too often, hindering their ability to effectively deal with problems and lead a satisfying life. Discover:
What 'overthinking' is and what causes it
Why women are particularly prone to negative thinking
Techniques for overcoming overthinking and finding real solutions to problems
Problem areas which cause us to think negatively - and what to do about them
Clearly and engagingly written, and packed with case studies and examples, Women Who Think Too Much will change lives and is destined to become a self-help classic.
