Undoing Depression
Undoing Depression
What Therapy Doesn't Teach You and Medication Can't Give You
One in ten people suffer from depression and for many sufferers depression has been their experience for so long that it is possible to believe that it has become who they are. Yet, depression is an illness, like heart disease; it something that one ''has''. Like heart disease, depression is fuelled by complex, interrelated factors: genetic, environmental, biochemical. In this eminently sensible book Richard O'Connor considers another, often overlooked factor: our own habits. Unwittingly, the sufferer can become good at depression. Learning how to hide it, how to work around it, perhaps even achieving in their life a depressive can make it through every day but each day is a struggle rather than satisfying. They deprive themselves of the possibility of true recovery, of joy and healthy emotion, of the feeling of being alive in the world. Ultimately, they make things worse. Undoing Depression teaches you how to replace depressive patterns of thought and relating to other people and behaving with new, better skills. Anyone who has learned to do depression can learn how to undo it.
