Learned optimism worksheet (2002)

This is a free self-help tool aimed at increasing levels of optimism. It provides a light touch introduction to the concept of learned optimism and a worksheet of Seligman's ABCDE Disputation technique based on the principles of learned optimism. It can be thought of as a two part framework, used to identify and alter pessimistic thought patterns. The first part allows the participant to address the adversity, the underlying beliefs and the consequences of those beliefs in a given situation which gives rise to pessimism. The second part revolves around disputing these often negative, underlying beliefs by introducing contradictory and challenging evidence to foster a more optimistic explanatory style. The user is subsequently asked to take notes of any changes in energy levels as a result of havng disputed their negative beliefs.
