A guide to avoiding and lift depression
Depression is on the increase - more people than ever before are suffering. Whatever the reasons - social change, recession, family pressures, our own mortality - there is, by any standard, an epidemic sweeping the world.
However it may feel to the sufferer, there are ways out. There are ways to deal with and change the situation, whatever it is - and they are presented here. The techniques described in this book have been developed and refined over many years of clinical practice. They can be applied by the individual with little or no help from other people.
Using real-life examples and case histories, 'Beating the Blues' deals with depression, its causes and solutions in three clear sections:
- Personality, personal responsibility and personal power.
- Specific techniques for dealing with depression
- Creating a future without depression and in line with your own values and goals
'Beating the Blues' is a practical guide for people who want to recognise and deal with depression without resorting to professional help or drug treatments.
