Description - Women Who Think Too Much by Susan Nolen-Hoeksema
Since the last few decades of the 20th century 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 this 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 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. She discusses: 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; and problem areas which cause us to think negatively - and what to do about them.
