Experts from Glasgow conducted research involving more than 200 volunteers. One of the groups was offered traditional pills, while the other - reading books about self-management of psychological problems.
The results of studies showed that patients from the "reading" group showed better dynamics in treatment than those sitting on antidepressants. Literature, which scientists advise as a therapy, contains the principles of treatment with the help of conversations, that is, in this case, a psychological genre. According to experts, people are able to change their own thinking with the help of books.
