Depression is a disorder that affects the mood, thinking and behavior of a person.The aim of the present study was to review the literature related to Beck's negative cognitive triad (Self-World-Future), which constitute the core of depressive thoughts, according to Cognitive and Axiological model for depressive disorders.Material and Method: A literature review was conducted on both Greek and English languages, through Pubmed, Scopus, Science Direct and Google Scholar databases, using the key-words: "conceptions", "cognitive triad", "depression" Results: The Cognitive Model for Depression emphasizes the importance of one's negative cognitions about self, world and future. In the axiological model for depressive disorders, the evaluation of life events is based on particular dysfunctional preconceptions, conceptions and metaconceptions which are related to the negative assessment of “self”, “world” and “future” respectively, according to the negative cognitive triad. Conceptions used by “healthy” and “mature” individuals may be helpful to the effective management of daily problems and the progressive goal achievement, while dysfunctional conceptions result to cognitive distortions of reality and may threaten individual’s mental health.Conclusions: The modification of dysfunctional conceptions and their replacement with more functional ones may increase individuals’ resilience to stressful life events and improve their psychological / emotional stability and quality of life.
