Description

Millions of adults are depressed. If you fall in this group, help is here: "Hack Your Depression" can give you immediate relief, in the form of tested stratagems-no-nonsense tips that really work. Therapy is expensive. This book isn't! In it, you'll find a wealth of real-world advice drawn from therapy, from personal experience, and from the latest scientific research. When you're depressed, you don't need to be told "happiness is a choice" or "things could always be worse." You need deep insights, not easy pop-psych platitudes. This book is crammed full of short, easy-to-digest, easy-to-apply stratagems designed to allow you to make real progress on your problems, at your own pace, using reality-based techniques that don't require a wholesale change of personality overnight. Learn what the scientific research says about the connections between trauma, PTSD, and depression. Find out what it's like inside a mental health rehab unit. Find out what the research says about EFT ("tapping"), EMDR, the "rewind technique," and other techniques for dealing with trauma. Learn the nuanced, non-simplistic truth about antidepressants. Find out why the science on electroshock therapy is shockingly substandard (and why you should never choose ECT, if you can avoid it). Get the facts; get inspiration; get techniques you can put to use, "right now, today." It's all in this book. Take your recovery to the next level. "Hack Your Depression!"show more
