How to Help Someone with Depression: A Practical Toolkit (Paperback)Dr Emma Cotterill (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
It can be tough watching someone you love struggling with depression, with no idea how best to help. Depression can be mild, or so all-consuming that the person you love is hardly recognisable. It can come in bouts, or span a significant period of time, which can take its toll on those closest to the sufferer.
In this accessible guide, clinical psychologist Dr Emma Cotterill gives you a clear understanding of the nature of depression, likely causes and practical ways you can help someone experiencing depression - however severe. She draws on the experiences of both sufferers and their supporters to help you feel a little less alone in this difficult time. She also shows you the importance of looking after yourself, and how to seek outside help.
Throughout the book you will develop your own 'supporter's toolkit' of knowledge, understanding, skills, strategies, self-care and resources that will help you support your loved one as best you can, whilst maintaining your own self care and boundaries.
