The present authors comment that a large amount of research supports the theory on hope by C. R. Snyder (2000, and see record 2003-01827-001). They briefly discuss agency-related hope thoughts and the setting of binding goals, pathways-related hope thoughts and goal striving, and implications for psychotherapy.
