PST focuses on the here and now - individuals take an active role in resolving life problems.
ePST® is backed by the large body of research on Problem-Solving Treatment. Many individuals suffering from depression or stress stop using effective problem-solving skills, instead relying on the actions of others or the passage of time to resolve issues. Hopelessness, low energy, or impaired concentration lead people with depression to avoid dealing with problems. Problems build up and become more overwhelming and depression deepens. PST helps people re-engage and take control of their lives again by focusing on the here and now, addressing concrete, observable problems rather than dwelling on past experiences or regrets. PST helps the individual take an active role in planning and implementing activities that may resolve those problems.
