The psychologist who has changed how we understand depression and happiness

Dorothy Rowe, world-renowned Australian psychologist and writer, has recently been listed as one of the greatest living thinkers of our time. 

The list of top 100 living geniuses was compiled by a panel of six experts in creativity and innovation from Creators Synectics, a global consultants firm.

The company emailed 4,000 Britons this summer and asked them to nominate up to 10 living people who they considered geniuses.

Each genius was then awarded scores out of ten against criteria which included: paradigm shifting; popular acclaim; intellectual power; achievement and cultural importance.

Dorothy Rowe is renowned for her work on depression. She has shown how depression is not an illness but an intolerable prison we build for ourselves out of how we see ourselves and our world, and that we can escape this prison by choosing to change the way we interpret our lives.

She has written many books over the years, including Beyond Fear, Friends and Enemies, Dorothy Rowe's Guide to Life, The Real Meaning of Money, Time on our Side, Courage to Live, Successful Self, and Choosing Not Losing.  

Dorothy Rowe will be visiting Australia from December to March and is available for interview
