About the Book

In his 2012 book Time Cure, psychologist Philip Zimbardo introduced a groundbreaking therapeutic approach for PTSD sufferers, co-developed with Rosemary Sword. “Time Perspective Therapy” shifts mental focus from the past to the present, and from negative to positive events, helping the subject achieve a more balanced view of life. Featuring relatable real-life stories, this book describes how TPT can help anyone living with depression, anxiety or stress move beyond the negative experiences of the past—from toxic relationships to bullying—toward a more positive future.
