Beat Depression with Self Help Techniques
Front Cover
Andrew Vass


Brief Description: Facing difficult situations is part of our everyday lives, but we can easily feel overwhelmed and become drawn into a depressive state. However, this book illustrates that, by using a range of self-counselling techniques to explore our inner world of thoughts and feelings, it is possible to overcome our problems and move on.
Through a logical sequence of chapters, each containing a series of tasks, role-playing examples, illuminative illustrations, challenging questions and useful self-help exercises, the reader will gain a practical understanding of the different counselling techniques and the power and effectiveness of cognitive and rational emotive behavioural therapies.
Tackling a wide range of issues, including relationship problems, bringing up children, bullying, work pressures, stress, anger, grief, morale and assertiveness, this down-to-earth guide to dealing with depression represents an essential DIY kit for achieving a more positive and healthy outlook on life.

Special Note: This book is also available as an eBook. An old edition of the paperback version carries the following ISBN: 978-1-904444-25-1.

About the Author: Andrew Vass has been a teacher of history, guidance and enterprise in Edinburgh since 1980. He is also a part-time lecturer in counselling and self-help therapies, both keen interests for many years, and writes historical features for the Highland press.
