Everyone faces bad times and difficult situations; why doesn't everyone get depressed? Are there specific skills you can develop that will protect you from depression and help prevent future episodes? The answer is yes. You can break through the patterns of depression with the skills and perspectives contained here.

With Breaking the Patterns of Depression by Michael D. Yapko, Ph.D. you will learn to:

  • manage difficult situations

  • solve problems effectively

  • anticipate the likely consequences of your actions

  • think and act in a powerful, goal oriented fashion

  • balance different areas of your life

  • use your self knowledge to stay out of hurtful situations

Throughout, special activity sections entitled "Learn by Doing" and "Shifting Perspectives" help you take an active and "hands on" approach to helping yourself.

Realistic and enormously helpful. Breaking Through the Patterns of Depression allows you to recognize your triggers for depression and, best of all, clarify what you can do about them. With this knowledge in hand, you can control depression, rather than having depression control you.

"Yapko's prose is clear and has a refreshingly low psychobabble quotient, and the tone is upbeat ... a carefullyconstructed self help guide." - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
