Overview

Do you feel stuck, trapped in a cycle of loneliness, despair, discontent and sadness? Do you have trouble sleeping, have to "wind” yourself up to get out of bed in the morning, have difficulty concentrating and focusing on work, loved ones and family? According to a recent survey 54 million people do. Defeating Depression will guide you toward identifying, understanding, coping with and healing conflicts and issues in your life so you will no longer feel powerless and filled with pain. Finally, you will be free to find and enjoy happiness and satisfaction.

Defeating Depression will teach you how to identify these problem areas in your life and overcome barriers before you feel like they are paralyzing you. It will provide you with the tools to face life's issues and show you how to handle undesirable feelings, attitudes, reactions and falsities that cause too many people to feel powerless. Compiled from his twenty-five years of experience, Battenhausen's revolutionary "Calm and Sense" approach will empower you to take control of your life and feelings, not just today, but in the future.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Licensed clinical social worker Battenhausen pulls from his research and more than 20 years of practice to offer strategies for people who want to feel better about themselves, the work they do, and the world in which they live. His method revolves around developing enough emotional invincibility to remain calm in the midst of negative events and have the sense to cease negative self-talk and believe that positive change is possible. The author emphasizes the necessity of self-appreciation and healthy self-talk and coaches readers in using each in a variety of stressful situations. Given the epidemic proportions of depression in our culture, Battenhausen's book is a valuable mental-health tool.
