Rethinking Depression: How to Shed Mental Health Labels and Create Personal Meaning Hot
February 29, 2012 164 0Add
In this provocative and path-breaking distillation of a career spent working with individuals seeking help with mood and motivation, Eric Maisel reveals the implications of one of the era’s most dramatic cultural shifts. In recent decades, much of the unhappiness inherent in the human condition has been monetized into the disease of depression and related "disorders." Maisel persuasively critiques this sickness model and prescribes a potent new approach that updates the best ideas of modern psychology. The result is a revolutionary reimagining of life’s difficulties and a liberating model of self-care that optimizes our innate human ability to create meaning and seize opportunity in any circumstance.

Rethinking Depression: How to Shed Mental Health Labels and Create Personal Meaning 2012-06-15 18:35:35 Sarah-Beth
Rethinking Depression is an interesting and provocative book that examines how we think about mental health, and how we can create a life packed with personal meaning. Maisel writes that "the word depression has virtually replaced unhappiness in our internal vocabularies." Unhappiness is a natural response to life's trials but that doesn't mean that it should be medicated.
