- Hodder Education Publishers
Overcoming Postnatal Depression uses the trusted Five Areas model of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), helping people experiencing postnatal depression to change how they feel. The Five Areas model helps the reader make key changes using a clear, pragmatic and accessible style, by examining five important aspects of our lives:
·Life situation, relationships, resources and problems
·Altered feelings or moods
·Altered physical symptoms or sensations
·Altered behaviour or activity levels
By bringing together specialists in postnatal depression, and with the use of self-help resources, this course addresses all the common challenges faced by women during times of low mood after having a baby. It provides access to the proven CBT approach, helping the reader make positive changes in their life in a planned and achievable way. An additional workbook aimed at friends and relatives describes how they can offer support.
The workbooks also provide an invaluable resource for counsellors, general practitioners, health visitors, nursing staff, midwives, occupational therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, self-help groups and other voluntary sector organizations.
A linked and completely free online support course is located at www.livinglifetothefull.com. Additional written, DVD and audio resources are available at www.fiveareas.com.
