Future Directed Therapy® (FDT) was developed by over a 5-year period working with real people diagnosed with depression at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center and Emory Healthcare. It is the first and only treatment for depression created using current cognitive science and based on the understanding that the brain operates in a primarily future-oriented way.



The best way to predict the future is to create it

Knowing why you do something is far less important than knowing how to change your behavior. FDT was developed to teach people exactly how to break out of old patterns of behavior, by teaching skills based on real cognitive science that allow you to think differently about who you are and what you’re capable of doing. When you feel good about where you’re going in life, negative emotions fade away and you feel a sense of purpose and well-being. The effectiveness of FDT for various mental health disorders is being studied in on-going reasearch at WMI.
