Active Treatment of Depression


Depression is a chronic recurring illness, one that affects twenty percent of the American population.

  • Research confirms that the majority of people suffering from depression do not respond quickly to standard prescribed treatments, whether theraputic or pharmacological in nature. In fact many existing treatments for depression actually exacerbate the disease. In this provacative book, Richard O'connor that people with depression need a different approach to treatment than any available today.
  • The book describes what it is like to live with depression, the effects, the stigma, the difficulty in getting treatment -- and then introduces the "common sense" model of depression. This model emphasizes the muliple biopsychosocial systems involved in the illness.
  • Throughout this practical yet person book, the author shares his own experiences in battling depression.
