Coping with Depression by Siang-Yang Tan

This product was recommended by Jon Reeves from Jon Reeves, PhD

This book teaches fundamentals about depression, and psychology in general. The authors are both pastors, both have doctorates in psychology, and are clearly educators at heart. A helpful example is their use of the ABC’s of depression: Affect, Behavior, Cognition. It’s a simple framework that folks can use to examine their experience of depression and change how they feel, how they act, and how they think. This book is no substitute for therapy, of course, and there are many forms of depression that would require more depth than this (or any book) can uncover–but it’s a helpful start.
