This is the first title in an all-new series exploring how to cope with problems of the mind. New scientific discoveries have shown which parts of the brain react when we feel panicked, depressed, or overwhelmed emotionally. By harnessing this knowledge we can begin to understand how our brain generates feelings and what we can do to control these experiences. The causes of depression are often difficult to explain, but this practical book focuses on how the depressed mind works and what can be done to combat this debilitating condition. Providing a detailed analysis of available drugs as well as a set of cognitive therapy exercises to help alter the way the brain responds, this invaluable guide will enable sufferers to tackle the specific problems of depression.
