I'm a therapist and I keep copies of this book on hand to give to clients. It's a book to USE rather than to read as such. A person can dip in anywhere - just open the book at random and keep doing so until he or she finds something that helps.
I have read some other books on depression that were very helpful in understanding what is going on in your mind & body. This book didn't really give me much insite into depression, & I didn't like the poems or little sayings on every other page--that was a real waste. IF you decide to buy the book--buy it used. Save some money!!!!
I was directed to read this book almost 5 years ago. My doctor suggested it to help me understand what was going on. I must say that it helped me a lot. If you can find the audio book, it is really uplifting. (If you are depressed, seek help and read this book!)
First it tells you all about depreesion then going on with helping you deal with it and little things you can do to help.
How To Heal Depression is the most helpful book I could find when I dealt with months of darkness. It is filled with many bite-sized pieces, some humorous, some historical, some enlightening. It is gentle, light hearted, and above all encouraging. The authors are up to date on the causes, the theories, the treatments, but never present them in a thick arcane manner. It is easy to understand. Above all, How To Heal Depression, gives the sufferer hope. The authors begin by insuring that the reader knows that he/she is not to blame for the state of depression. It continues by giving many practical suggestions of how to be good to yourself. I tried lots of books. This was the first one that actually conveyed to me that there was hope. There is a logical order to the book, but it does not need to be read straight from start to finish. Pieces of it can be read or re-read at odd times. There is a personal revelation from one of the authors near the end that comes as a happy surprise. That alone is worth the price of the book. Read this one. If you suffer from depression, you owe it to yourself.
