Abstract / Summary
Everyone is in a negative or pessimistic mood once in a while. It’s a perfectly normal state of mind when it can be overcome. However, when negative moods are excessive, they can be detrimental to reaching full potential and developing and maintaining effective interpersonal relationships. Optimistic people are a pleasure to be with, see the bright side of every situation, and look at the possibilities in any challenge life presents. On the other hand, people who are pessimistic drain others’ energy. Negative people complain about everything and are pessimistic about any challenges life presents.The Coping with Negativity – Yours & Mine Workbook helps participants deal more effectively with not only their own negativity, but also with the negativity of others at home, in relationships, in the workplace … anywhere. It provides assessments and self-guided activities to help participants learn useful skills for coping with their own negativity and the negativity of others.The activities are divided into four chapters to help you identify and select assessments easily and quickly:Chapter 1: Types of Negativity This chapter helps participants explore how they demonstrate their own negativity.Chapter 2: Negative Characteristics This chapter helps participants identify the specific negative characteristics they possess.Chapter 3: Cope with Your Negativity This chapter helps participants identify and cope with their own negative attitudes and behaviors.Chapter 4: Cope with Other’s Negativity This chapter helps participants identify resources for dealing with negativity in other people.All of the guided activities are fully reproducible for use with your clients/participants.
