Hello and welcome to Know Your Self, brought to you by Wherapy: Therapy – Wherever, Whenever!
In this four week course, you will learn how to indicate areas of inner-conflict and distress and reflect on them. You will also learn about how different versions of your self compete with each other to make you feel depressed.
This course uses simple models to illustrate different psychological processes. At the end of each lesson, you will be able to draw a model of your self and see how your depression and inner-conflict has been “created”.
We encourage you to take each lesson at your own pace. There is a lot to learn. Short videos and diagrams are provided to make the information easier to digest. Homework will be assigned at the end of every lesson.
Also, please make the most of the week between lessons by applying what you have learnt and by doing the homework consistently throughout the week and not leaving it until the day before.
