9781608828326: When Depression Hurts Your Relationship: How to Regain Intimacy and Reconnect with Your Partner When You’re Depressed

When you are feeling depressed, having a loving, supportive relationship with your partner can help you in your path towards healing and creating a happier life. But often depression interferes with your relationship, distancing you from your partner during your time of need.

If you are in the midst of depression, you may worry that you aren’t good enough for your partner, or become irritable around them. You may even push them away when you feel like your emotions are beyond your control. In addition, your sense of intimacy may diminish, and your sex life may fizzle as a result of fatigue, medications and feeling disconnected from your partner. The hard truth is that feelings of isolation, worthlessness, and tiredness can all take a hefty toll on your love life. But you don’t have to let depression be the demise of your relationship.

Using an integrative approach based in mindfulness, interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), When Depression Hurts Your Relationship offers practical skills to help readers with depression reignite intimacy with their partners.

If you suffer from depression, this book is a must-read to help keep your romantic relationship healthy, exciting, and rewarding for you both.

From the Back Cover:

Depression has a way of casting a dark shadow over all aspects of your life. It drains your your motivation, makes you self-critical, and breeds a sense of hopelessness and isolation that can make it difficult for you to connect with your partner. You may become irritable around them, secretly worry that you are a burden, experience diminishing sexual desire, and you may begin to push your partner away when difficult emotions overwhelm you. So how can you stop depression from coming between you and your loved one?

When Depression Hurts Your Relationship offers an evidence-based, integrative approach to help you reignite intimacy and reconnect with your partner. The book offers powerful skills to help you manage painful emotions, communicate your worries to your partner, feel good about yourself, and reawaken your sexual desire. Above all, you'll learn to cultivate true understanding and compassion--both in your relationship and within yourself. If you suffer from depression, this book is a must-read to help keep your romantic relationship healthy, exciting, and rewarding.
