My Partner Is Depressed What Can I Do Book Excerpt:

My Partner Is Depressed, What Can I Do? is asked by many of Bronwyn Barter’s clients, people seeking help to support and understand their partners and loved ones living with depression. Bronwyn has been a practising Breathwork therapist for over 25 years and is the president of the Australian Academy of Breathwork. She specialises in the condition of diagnosed and undiagnosed depression, teaching people to breathe and relax in the face of tension, sadness, stress, grief, and adversity. The author’s personal experience with depression and the many years of consulting with her clients have given her valuable insights into the causes and positive outcomes possible for those who are depressed and their families. Living with someone who is constantly “down” can cause relatives to spiral into their own sadness and helplessness. Bronwyn discusses some causes of depression and ways to alleviate it. She speaks to the families of those who are depressed, the relatives who are often forgotten when viewed from outside the family situation. There are as many causes of depression as people suffering its effects. The most commonly felt, yet frequently denied reasons include social anxiety, PTSD, family changes, illness, relationships, grief, threats of suicide, and the responsibility of looking after oneself. This definitive book will help supporters understand depression, and find the valuable and practical help they need for a recovery that leads to a happy life.

Children of the Depressed Book Excerpt:

Have you ever wondered, Why am I so negative? or Why is my life so chaotic? Whether or not your parent was ever formally diagnosed with depression, you’ve probably always known there was something different about your upbringing. And even though you’ve grown up and moved on, you may still feel the after-effects of living with your parent’s illness. In Children of the Depressed, a depression expert helps adult children understand and overcome common problems that stem from growing up with a depressed parent, such as poor communication skills and negative self-talk. Using skills and practices rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), you will learn to shed the old dynamics and ways of thinking that have been weighing you down and keeping you from enjoying healthy relationships and the life you deserve. Most books on depression only focus on getting help for the depressed person. This book is written for you, the adult child of parents with who have struggled with depression. You need emotional healing after a dysfunctional childhood, and most importantly—you need an opportunity for your voice to be heard. You don’t have to become stuck in the past. By identifying and recognizing the feelings you experienced at a young age, you will start laying the groundwork for a happier and healthier life—socially, physically, emotionally, and psychologically.

How You Can Survive When They re Depressed Book Excerpt:

Each year more than 17 million Americans suffer from a depressive illness, yet few suffer in solitude. How You Can Survive When They're Depressed explores depression from the perspective of those who are closest to the sufferers of this prevalent disorder--spouses, parents, children, and lovers--and gives the successful coping strategies of many people who live with a clinical depressive or manic-depressive and often suffer in silence, believing their own problems have no claim to attention. Depression fallout is the emotional toll on the depressive's family and close friends who are unaware of their own stressful reactions and needs. Sheffield outlines the five stages of depression fallout: confusion, self-doubt, demoralization, anger, and finally, the desire to escape. Many people will find relief in the knowledge that their self-blame, guilt, sadness, and resentment are a natural result of living with a depressed person. Sheffield brings together many real-life examples from the pioneering support group she attends at Beth Israel Medical Center of how people with depression fallout have learned to cope. From setting boundaries to maintaining an outside social life, she gives practical tactics for handling the challenges and emotional stresses on a day-to-day basis.

Healing Depression without Medication Book Excerpt:

What if everything we thought we knew about depression—and how to heal from it—was wrong? Many antidepressants—the first line in our standard of care for treating depression—bring with them potential health risks, yet 1 in 6 Americans takes medication to alleviate feeling sad, anxious, stuck, or unable to focus or sleep. More and more, conventional medicine pathologizes how we respond to life’s challenges—like feeling trapped in an unfulfilling job, grieving the death of a loved one, or being anxious about a bad relationship—telling us that they’re symptoms of disease. Psychiatrist Jodie Skillicorn presents a new path, debunking the myth of the neurochemical imbalance and exploring the roots of depression, such as adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and poorly managed day-to-day stress. Evidence-based and fully supported by current depression research, Dr. Skillicorn’s holistic methods for beating depression—including nutrition, mindfulness, fostering meaningful connections, exercise, sleep, nature, and breathwork—empower readers to become agents of their own wholeness and healing.
