First published in 1974, The Secret Strength of Depression has long been acclaimed as one of the clearest and most helpful books on the subject of depression. In this self-help classic, Dr. Frederic Flach, a prominent New York psychiatrist, shows the 19 million Americans who suffer from depression how they can tap their creative energies to turn their depression into a force for personal growth, rather than a cause for shame.
The updated fourth edition includes chapters on posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression in children, the role of spirituality in aiding recovery, and the myths and miracles of the new antidepressants.
