Much of the popular literature about depression, anxiety and stress says that these conditions are so complicated that we need experts to explain them to us. Some writers say they are diseases; we need medical experts to understand them. Some say they are "disorders" so that, in addition to medical experts we need behavioral experts to tell us how our brain works. Others say we need master teachers to explain the universal truths of Eastern religion before we can fully understand our troubling feelings. Is it really true that our feelings are so complicated that we must rely on scientists and philosophers to explain them to us? This workbook gives a clear answer: NO. "The Thinking, Doing and Believing Workbook" views depression, anxiety and stress as normal human feelings. The problem is not that we have these feelings, it is that we neglect the messages they convey. When we neglect them they disrupt our daily functioning and, if we persist in neglecting them, they can ruin the quality of our lives. The Developmental Approach presented in this workbook notes the many ways we actively contribute to our depressive, anxious and stressful feelings. This is important because if we participate in becoming distressed then we have the option of changing our behavior and replacing dysfunctional habits with more functional ones. This workbook is a map. If you use it, it may: Help you understand what you have experienced and prepare you for what to expect; Suggest skills you might want to use as you travel through strange terrain; Find more creative ways to describe your emotional surroundings; Orient you to the present moment; Provide glimpses of recovery so that you will recognize it when you make progress along your way.

About the Author:

Mr. Watkins is a Licensed Independent Social Worker. Among the diverse positions he held are the following; Director of a School-Based Mental Health Program for Emotionally Troubled Youth; Supervisor of Treatment Foster Parents; Case Manager for Abused and Neglected Youth; Mental Health Therapist Throughout his almost thirty year career Mr. Watkins worked in urban, community based settings. He has worked effectively with deeply disturbed clients as well as angry and hostile clients. His passion has been to communicate the key concepts of clinical and social work practice in simple, straightforward language. He avoids intellectualizing but at the same time does not talk down to clients. This book reflects his passion. It is free of mental health jargon as well as pseudo-scientific and metaphysical language so often found in other self-help books. Mr. Watkins recognizes that no one recovers without a functioning support system. The best recovery theory is useless if you don't have friends who are attentive listeners, offer thoughtful guidance, possess a gentle sense of humor and who challenge you to be a better person than you ever imagined.
