Study suggests imagery technique to treat mental health issues

Nearly eight million people suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) every year. These patients are most of the times treated using imagery techniques.

Imagery techniques or training means replacing negative mental images with positive images and dealing with negative emotions properly.

A recent study says that this technique can also help people who want to overcome depression and even those who are struggling for everyday happiness.

The research was done on 30 participants who were given positive images to think about future situations to improve emotional balance and everyday social interactions for a period of 12 weeks.

The study also suggests companies to use such strategies to improve employee motivation and manage their teams to overcome big changes.
