The Gift of Depression PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Gift of Depression free pdf In her first book, "The Gift of ADHD", psychologist Lara Honos-Webb shows readers a radical new way to reframe attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder as a range of strengths, aptitudes and advantages. Now she applies her trend-setting, outside-the-box thinking to one of the most common mental health diagnoses: depression. Instead of directing their energies to overcoming or getting rid of depression, Honos-Webb helps her readers see periods of depression as opportunities for growth and introspection. Each chapter of the book discusses a different aspect of depression as a gift or positive opportunity. Depression can be the start of a reorientation in life, a step in the search for meaning, or a chance for letting go of hurtful aspects of the self. It can also be a chance to deal with grief and loss and learn to expand possibilities. The book concludes with a section of advice about when it is important to defend against depression and how best to go about it when the need arises.
