Overview

Whether depression is felt mildly or acutely, temporarily or persistently, it strikes nearly everyone.

Drs. Minirth and Meier believe, however, that the emotional pain of depression can be overcome or altogether avoided. Drawing from their professional training, counseling experience, and biblical knowledge, they provide expert answers to questions such as:

• What are the primary sources of emotional pain?
• Which personality dynamics lead to depression?
• How should a person deal with anger and anxiety?
• What medical treatments are available for depression?

Happiness Is a Choice explores the complex relationship between spiritual life and psychological health and then spells out basic steps for recovering from depression and maintaining a happy, fulfilling life.
