Top Customer Reviews
For Laura and her family, a move to Houston appeared as a great adventure, an American dream. With a previous posting, followed by a stint in her home country where she trained as a psychotherapist, she believed that another move would be straightforward. She couldn't have been more wrong. She did not expect such differences between the UK and USA, she struggled with a loss of identity and confusion with her past life. She slowly sinked into depression and wanted to discover the causes of it to find a way back to herself.
This book, written with honesty, hope and humour, is for anyone lost in depression, struggling with loss - of identity, home or family and friends, and also for anyone facing a move, a posting, giving good advice for any expat.
The book contains a second-part of a comprehensive self-help section with tips on building emotional resilience while on the move, recognising depression and the `Do's and Don'ts' of a depressive episode - written by the therapist who has been there. There is also an interesting section on recommended resources.
