Overview

This workbook is designed to help you as you work together with a qualified mental health professional to overcome your depression. The program described will help you develop a set of coping strategies and skills so that you can proactively deal with depression and prevent it from compromising your quality of life.

Based on the idea that depression is a "beast" to be tamed, the treatment utilizes an acronym to help you understand the goals of treatment. You will work with your therapist to understand the biology of depression, as well as how your emotions, your activity level, the situations you find yourself in, and the thoughts you have all contribute to your depression (the BEAST). This treatment is scientifically proven and can be used in conjunction with medication.
Filled with worksheets and forms for completing in-session exercises, as well as at-home assignments, this workbook provides all the tools you need to successfully overcome your depression and prevent future relapse.
