Taming the Black Dog: How to Beat Depression - A Practical Manual for Sufferers, Their Relatives and Colleagues

Author(s): Patrick Ellverton

Psychology

 Although drugs can help stabilize, ultimately the process of healing the wounds inflicted by the 'Black Dog' (as Winston Churchill termed his own depression) needs to be applied by the sufferers themselves. Patrick Ellverton feels that he has fought a winning battle with the Black Dog and in this book shares his formula for doing so. "The actions I am recommending will enhance everyone's enjoyment of life, beyond recognition, irrespective of whether they are temporary sufferers or ones like myself who have inherited the beast." 


This self help manual is for those for whom depression arises from the impact of exceptional circumstances such as childbirth and menopause, commercial and professional failure, accident, grief, divorce or debt as well as for those more permanent owners of the Black Dog.
