Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

O'Connor, a therapist who suffers from depression, shows that depressed people have trouble digging themselves out of one episode or warding off the next because they have become adept at the "skills of depression," such as denying, procrastinating, and intellectualizing. Actively playing mentor, coach, cheerleader, and nurturer, therapists can engage patients' emotions, mitigate the effects of shame, and help them see connections between what happens in their lives and how they feel inside.

Book News Annotation:

Addressing his fellow professionals in the mental health field, O'Connor argues that the current state of understanding of the causes and treatments for depression are woefully inadequate and quite often counterproductive. He argues that no single theory can adequately explain the causes and no single treatment plan can successfully be applied universally to depressed patients. He also calls upon his colleagues to recognize that although incidents of depression may sometimes be successfully treated, all too often depression is a chronic disease that is not improved by one-time interventions of pharmaceuticals or other therapies. O'Connor advocates for an "active" treatment that holistically explores multiple causes of depression and looks to all treatment modalities to find the proper combination of methods that can be applied to each unique case.
