Overcoming Depression – 3rd edition
If you suffer from depression you are far from alone. Depression is very common, affecting over 300 million people around the world. Written by Professor Paul Gilbert OBE, internationally recognised for his work on depression, this highly acclaimed self-help book has been of benefit to thousands of people including sufferers, their friends and families, and those working in the medical profession.
This fully revised third edition has been extensively updated and rewritten to reflect over ten years of new research on understanding and treating depression, particularly the importance of developing compassionate ways of thinking, behaving and feeling.
Overcoming Mood Swings
Most people know what it is like to experience high or low spirits. For some individuals, however, emotional extremes can seriously disrupt their lives, either because they happen too frequently or because the mood swings are intense and are accompanied by other symptoms of depression or mania (often referred to as bipolar disorder).
This practical self-help guide provides background information on depression and mania and offers tried and tested techniques that will help the reader identify and manage their mood more effectively, and achieve a more stable emotional state.
Overcoming Low Self-Esteem
A self-help classic, winning acclaim for its practical and user-friendly approach and now recommended on the National Health Service’s self-help scheme known as Books on Prescription. This book will aid readers to understand what has caused their low self-esteem and, with this knowledge, break out of the vicious circle of negative self-image, learn the art of self-acceptance and alter their lives for the better.
Overcoming Anger and Irritability
An invaluable self-help guide to managing a widespread behavioural problem. This is a practical self-help programme for those who find that they are spoiling the lives of both themselves and those around them with their almost constant irritability and flashes of bad temper. It will help the reader understand why such behaviour occurs and what can be done to prevent it.
