I am pleased to say that in 2011 The British Psychological Society's leading peer-reviewed journal, Psychology and Psychotherapy evaluated the Human Givens approach in primary care at a general medical practice which showed that more than three out of four patients were either symptom-free or reliably changed as a result of HG therapy. This was accomplished in an average of only 3.6 sessions. There is currently a larger randomised control trial being undertaken to further prove the evidence base of the HG approach. The results speak for themselves.
One has to look past the fact that government has invested millions into the approach of CBT which lacks effectiveness or that mindfulness is the current fashionable strategy. Sweden recognises CBT is not working have given up on its approach. Mindfulness is increasing number of reports of people becoming psychotic through the stress of negative experiences suffered through meditation. The Human Givens utilises a broad approach which
I highly recommend this book above all others on mental health and wellbeing for any sufferer or practitioner in the field. I have found the techniques to be particularly useful as a practicing doctor with my patients and I have no doubt that the Human Givens can provide a solution for debilitated patients and practitioners who feel hopeless. Be a part of the revolution.
This book cuts through alot of the unneccessary information about the condition and dispels some of the awful myths. At last some concrete practical advice. This book offers some real solutions and insight to depression and i'm sure like myself it will put you well on the road to recovery.
I can't recommend this book enough. If you are suffering from depression or you are caring or treating anyone with this condition i'm sure this book will be indispensible. I have spent alot of money and time researching depression and i can say this is without doubt the best book i have read on the subject.
I urge you to buy it.
Best regards, Duncan
This book allows you to understand depression and see it for what it really is (an insubstantial pain in the butt - it does not define who you are)
As a 20 year old university student suffering from depression and anxiety I must admit, I was a little sceptical about these "depression" books. Some really are a load of junk and no help but this book right here is a God send. I now understand that depression is NOT biological and I don't necessarily need "happy pills" in order to feel "normal". There are excellent techniques in the book that can help with relaxation and can be used literally anywhere (even on the bus!) I particularly like the fact that the book doesn't contain a whole load of psychobabble and I felt myself being spoken to not down at.
You will not regret purchasing this book!
