Product description

Review

"Have you been diagnosed with depression? Do you believe you’re stuck with it, because of your genetics, your brain chemistry, your past or your circumstances? Luckily, you’re not. In From Depression to Contentment, Dr. Bob Rich reveals how you can re-engineer your life to beat depression. The book is empowering, empathetic and written with great intelligence. The guide draws on many proven therapeutic tech­niques, and Dr. Bob adds something new and creative to each one, making them even more powerful. The author generously interweaves his own story of recovering from depression with other case studies and examples, making the book very relatable and easy to understand. The essential message of the book is that you can beat depression by improving the quality of your thinking, your behavior and your life. There are a couple of sections that appear to veer away from the main topic, but don’t skip them, because they offer uplifting stories full of hope, inspiration and motivation. Overall, a wonderfully refreshing and practical self-help guide to healing from depression and living a fulfilling life."
-- Beth Burgess, psychotherapist, author of Instant Wisdom, The Happy Addict, and The Recovery Formula

"Dr. Bob Rich has created a simple and direct guide to beat back depression for good. Put forth in easy to digest bits, the approach uses small, effective steps to move past the overwhelm of depression. Written in a conversational tone, Dr. Rich expresses his personal and profes­sional understanding of the toll depression takes on one's life, while avoiding technicalities of the condition. If you're looking to move past depression without drugs, then this practical guidebook is for you."
-- Diane Wing, M.A., author of The Happiness Perspective: Seeing Your Life Differently

"Depression can be turned into a positive and can actually enrich our lives if we just try. It is not easy to acquire the skills and the knowledge necessary to learn to cope well and to recover, but this book will make the effort easier. Specific interventions - like guided imagery and mindfulness meditation - are suggested and explained. All-in-all, this is a valuable manual on how to live well with depression and acquire the right skills and knowledge that will tame the depression to a point where the person will live well without being affected by symptoms."
-- Alfredo Zotti, author of Alfredo’s Journey: An Artist's Creative Life with Bipolar Disorder

About the Author

Bob Rich, Ph.D. earned his doctorate in psychology in 1972. He worked as an academic, researcher and applied scientist until "retiring" the first time at 36 years of age. Later, he returned to psychology and qualified as a Counseling Psychologist, running a private practice for over 20 years. During this time, he was on the national executive of the College of Counselling Psychologists of the Australian Psychological Society (APS), then spent three years as a Director of the APS. He was the therapist referrers sent their most difficult cases to. Bob retired in 2013, but still does pro bono counseling over the internet. This has given him hundreds of "children" and "grand-children" he has never met, because many of these people stay in touch for years. His major joy in life is to be of benefit to others, which is why he wrote a book that's in effect a course of therapy. You can get to know him well at his blog, Bobbing Around, https://bobrich18.wordpress.com
