This qualitative case study explores the use of hope therapy as a tool for treating depression in a 35-year-old woman. Over the course of an eight-week therapy program, the participant worked with a licensed therapist who specialized in hope therapy. The therapy sessions focused on identifying and challenging negative thought patterns, setting achievable goals, and developing a sense of hope and optimism for the future. Thematic analysis of the data collected from audio recordings, field notes, and the participant's written reflections revealed four major themes: (1) Hope as a coping mechanism, (2) Positive reframing of negative experiences, (3) Increased motivation and goal-setting, and (4) Improved overall well-being. The findings suggest that hope therapy can be an effective tool for treating depression in women, and future research should explore the potential long-term benefits of hope therapy and its effects on various aspects of well-being.
