Tony Bates' Coming Through Depression to be published by Gill Books this December


12-12-2011 11:45

“A deeply moving exploration of what depression means and feels for those who experience it ... It is a very empowering book, making it clear that depression need never have power over us."
Sister Stanislaus Kennedy, visionary and social innovator


“Tony Bates invites the reader to begin, slowly and surely, to move through the darkest of times, through setbacks and false dawns, towards a genuine recovery.“
Prof. Mark Williams, Director, University of Oxford Mindfulness Centre

 

This book reflects a move in the understanding of depression over the past ten years and also the development of a new approach to preventing the recurrence of depression, based on the practice of mindfulness. Coming Through Depression shows you the practical steps you can take to lift your mood; helps you listen to what depression may be trying to teach you about your life; and gives you a way to be with yourself when you feel most vulnerable.


While intended primarily as a guide to recovery for anyone who is experiencing depression, this book is also written with the relatives and friends of that person in mind, hoping they can make sense of what can be a difficult experience to grasp from the ‘outside’. Understanding the journey through depression by all who are affected can act as a bridge between people who feel isolated by depression and those who care about them.


Part One: Understanding Depression – why people become depressed and what experiences cause depression
Part Two: Recovery from Depression –taking action with a step-by-step plan
Part Three: Living with yourself – staying well and preventing relapse using mindfulness


Coming Through Depression is published by Gill Books on 16 December for €14.99.
