Description

Nineteen million Americans suffer from depression each year

It can strike anyone, and being a Christian does not exempt you. But help is here.

Understanding the ABCs of emotional life-Affect, Behavior, and Cognition-can shed light on the causes of depression. In this revised and updated edition of Coping with Depression, the authors look carefully at the ABCs, showing how your thoughts affect the way you feel and describing how each dimension is linked with depression. They balance the spiritual dimension of approaching depression with the most recent scientific research and offer highly practical and proven strategies for coping.

If you suffer from depression or know someone who does, you will find encouragement and help in this reassuring book.

The result: an educational and uplifting book to guide people out of depression."-Everett L. Worthington Jr., Ph.D., chair of psychology, Virginia Commonwealth University

"Coping with Depression is a spiritually sensitive, scientifically informed, and highly practical resource for people struggling with depression and those who would seek to understand and help them."-Stanton L. Jones, Ph.D., provost, Wheaton College
