Format: Paperback
I used this book several years ago, maybe three, and it was so helpful. It is much more than a pep-talk, it is a specific how-to manual that gives you concrete ideas about the steps you must take to lift yourself out of your slump/minor depression.

First, you have to get a handle on whether you are depressed (it could be something else making you blue), and how severely you are depressed. The book is designed for people whose depression scores are between 5-15 on the Beck scale (provided). If you are higher than 15, the author recommends that you give the book a try, but keep in mind that you MAY need professional assistance. I was a 23, but this book worked wonders for me, without any assistance.

The book has a behavioral approach to depression. This means that the authors believe your depressive behavior and feelings can be changed by first identifying/focusing on antecedents (what precedes your behavior or feelings) and consequences (what follows a behavior). The next step is to consciously change the antecedents and consequences of your behavior, rewarding yourself as you do so, and thereby slowly and steadily lift yourself out of depression.

A behavioral focus also means that this book will not help you analyze how you got started in your depressive behavior patterns. The authors believe it is not necessary to dig through all that stuff that in order to change yourself.

So in a way, this book is the antithesis of "talk therapy" -- I'd call this "do therapy".

The authors acknowledge that there are multiple roads to depression, that every depressed person has a unique set of problems.

A counselor told me about this book about 20 years ago. I have turned back to it many times. It has very helpful information about cognitive behavior. It has a workbook type format section that can also be helpful. I have used it when I was having problems with anxiety as well. Truly, it has been a godsend for me over the years. It has been especially comforting during life crises.

Well written in down-to-earth languane/grammer. Well worth reading if you ever 'fell the blues' or just need a good mood lift.

Used it in preparing my dissertation and still use it to teach a panoply of CBT interventions to my pre-doc psych students.
