Positive Psychology for Depression (Paperback)Miriam Akhtar (author)
Paperback 263 Pages
One in two people in the developed world will experience depression in their lifetime. Positive psychology is the scientific study of optimal functioning - what it takes to feel good, function well and flourish. This young branch of psychology has produced a number of evidence-based techniques, which have been scientifically proven to increase happiness and well-being. What is not so well known is that a delightful consequence of these interventions is that they also reduce the symptoms of depression. Positive Psychology for Overcoming Depression is aimed at the millions suffering mild-to-moderate depression and those who want to protect themselves against persistent low moods. The book explains key strategies to help you overcome depression and reduce the chances of it recurring. As you practise the simple yet highly-effective exercises, you will find your mood lifts naturally, your confidence, resilience, positivity and strength grow and your outlook becomes more optimistic. These strategies come from the author's professional practice as a positive psychologist and coach, her background as a journalist and as someone who has suffered from depression herself.
