Throughout time humans have faced different kinds of challenges. Most recently the main challenge involves ‘the mind’. Behaviorists have talked about the different stimuli that influence our response or explain our behaviors collectively with context. Recently data shows that context, the environment, social factors, and other psychological variables play a big role towards our mental health. It is worth it to stop and take stock of our collective thinking patterns in the context of community, society, nations and even as an individual. Mental well-being is one of the most under rated phenomenon. This talk will briefly look into the history of cognitive based therapies and how far we have come, how we can use what we have learnt to not only help ourselves but impact the next generation. Hopefully, we can gain some perspective, learn to direct mental activities, and help move us forward more informed about the processes of change within, and most importantly start a journey towards psychological flexibility.
