Written jointly by a former patient and her psychotherapist, Healing the Blues is a unique account about both sides of the therapeutic process.
At first, the cause of Dorothea Nudelman’s depression seems obvious. The effects of post-polio syndrome threatens all that she has worked so hard to achieve — both personal and professional success. But as is usually the case, the root of depression is more elusive. Using a wide range of tools, from dream analysis to hypnosis to humor, David Willingham performs his role as counselor to help Dorothea uncover the hidden cause of her pain. Together, they convey with amazing clarity the theoretical and practical issues involved in the progression of therapy and, ultimately, healing. In the end, Dorothea gains the confidence and tools she needs to overcome her depression when it strikes.
