HOLISTIC CHRISTIAN DEPRESSION TREATMENT LESSON 6 PSYCHOTHERAPY & DIET THERAPY

PSYCHOTHERAPY FOR DEPRESSION
Examining Beliefs

When you cling to false or negative beliefs about yourself, these beliefs result in negative feelings and negative behaviour which may contribute to depression.

For example if you believe "I am ugly", you will never feel good about yourself and you may even engage in self destructive behaviour. 



But, if you change this belief to "I am wonderfully made" (Psalm 139:14) and continue telling yourself that you are wonderful, even if you don't fell like it, you will be able to feel good about yourself and make better life choices.

Therefore, examine your beliefs or opinions about yourself and change the negative ones into positive ones that line up with what God’s Word says about you.

Self Esteem for Christians
