Book Description

Depression is not the most common emotional disturbance.

Anger and fear are. However, people do not seek help for these two afflictions as often as they do for feelings of guilt, despair, and depression. This is probably because the latter are recognized as the types of disturbances with which psychotherapists often work, whereas getting furious or worried is thought to be normal.

Unfortunately, too little has been understood about depression until recently. In the past, the poor soul who hated himself, lived a life feeling inferior, or felt life wasn't worth the effort, was given the standard medical remedy of antidepressant tablets, and sometimes Electro-Convulsive Therapy (E.C.T.) - all without understanding how he became depressed.

That time is past. It is now possible, with new methods, for the depressed individual to learn how to get over his pain, practically forever. Even better news is the fact that this can often be done in a short time if the right help and advice is given. This is what I have tried to show in this book: how people make themselves depressed, how they keep that depression alive, and how they can prevent depression in the future.

This book is written for you, the regular person, who does not know the technical psychological terms most books on this subject use. I have written in an easy-going style with numerous examples to help explain the points I am trying to make. Anyone should be able to understand what I have to say, and can most certainly use this knowledge to fight depression. Some of you will benefit greatly, I think, even to the point where you can correct your disturbance almost completely. Others of you will get a good start in overcoming your depressive moods but may need professional help to complete the job.

Even if you are not in need of help yourself, you may have someone dear to you who does. Consider this book a good source of advice for them. You can help your husband or wife, parents, children or friends to overcome depression by telling them what you have learned from studying this book and how many people have changed their lives after they understood the three main reasons for depression.
