The Human Dimension of Depression: A Practical Guide to Diagnosis, Understanding, and Treatment

Synopsis

This book describes the depressive in his or her natural habitat, studies the everyday problems that cause one's depression, and develops treatment approaches directed to the depressive's real-world plight. It explores the borderland between the sacred and the profane, the academic and the popular, the scientific but impractical and the practical but unscientific. It relies as much on common sense, anecdote, and individual insight as it does on case histories and psychological test protocols. The book is divided into four sections: description, cause, prevention, and treatment.
