Flagging the Therapy: Pathways Out of Depression and Anxietyfollows on from Dr Barry's best-selling book,Flagging the Problem.
As society undergoes rapid change and we face perhaps the bleakest economic conditions in modern memory, it is not surprising that the issue of mental health has become more prominent and somewhat more openly discussed. The problems of depression and anxiety seem to be the most prevalent with often debilitating effects on the sufferers and their families. However, in many cases, these afflictions can be treated and risks of recurrence significantly reduced.
Applying a system which uses color-coded flags for various mental states and problems, Dr. Barry explains the role our minds and brains play in the manifestation of depression and anxiety, and how these in turn can be shaped to lead us out of illness. The book takes a holistic view and examines the numerous medical, psychological and complimentary therapies that can all help in negotiating a pathway out of depression and anxiety.
There are color illustrations and extra appendices at the end of the book including information on self-help groups and resources available.
