This Reading Course is based on the premise that depression is much more than a chemical imbalance - it's a lifestyle that systematically involves all dimensions of a person's experience, including physiology, cognitive style, relationship patterns, and emotional and behavioral habits. Michael Yapko challenges the idea that medications are a miracle cure for depression. Margaret Wehrenberg shows how mobilizing a depressed client to take the fist step can be the key to treatment. Peggy Papp explores the relationship patterns that underlie depression. Bruce Ecker and Laurel Hulley demonstrate a brief therapy approach with depressed clients.
