Are you depressed? Do loved ones minimize your depression? Are you unsure how to help yourself—or even if you can? The truth of the matter is that depression can be disabling, misunderstood, and misdiagnosed in our society. In her book The Mind, Heart, and Soul of Depression: Your Guided Journal for Emotional Healing and Getting to the Truth of the Matter, Cathy Reimers, PhD, uses her twenty-five years of experience as a psychologist to explore the depths of depression. She shows you how to get to the causes of your depression with engaging short stories, followed by exercises to complete at your own pace. This self-help journal is divided into ten sections, beginning with a discussion of the symptoms of depression. Other sections outline links between depression and brain chemistry, the impact of family relationships and traumatic events, the risks of depression, the practice of mindfulness, psychological resources, and other helpful tools. You’ll also learn how to deal with your depression through journaling. Through The Mind, Heart, and Soul of Depression: Your Guided Journal for Emotional Healing and Getting to the Truth of the Matter, you will get to the mind, heart, and soul of your depression, let go of negative experiences, and free yourself from family conflicts. You’ll embrace the heart of the matter, journey on a path toward healing, and live life to the fullest again.
