Experts report that 17 million people in the U.S. suffer from clinical depression; half of those who recover will relapse within three years. This is the first book to address the problem of depression relapse.
It gives the most up-to-date, step-by-step strategies for preventing relapse. Most books on this disorder focus on crisis control during the acute phase of mild and severe depression. This book deals instead with the period after recovery when relapse is unfortunately common.
Learn about the repeating cycle of depression. Then, with self-assessment tools and engaging exercises, understand the stage you are dealing with.
Find practical advice about clinical options, including anti-depressant medication and continuing psychotherapy. Apply everyday strategies for thinking realistically, having fun, and being physically well.
