Depression

Depression can be debilitating. Because it can often appear to others as inertia, laziness, sadness, or boredom it is often misunderstood.

Strosahl & Robinson (2008) tell us that the myths about depression are:

1. Depression is abnormal

2. Depression is an inevitable response to life stress

3. Depression is about experiencing emotions (like feeling bad)

4. Depression is a biological illness

5. Medication is the best treatment for depression

6. Depression is something you have

Strosahl & Robinson give some very good explanations about how these ARE myths in their Mindfulness & Acceptance Workbook for Depression. Caron has walked alongside people experiencing depression using some of the techniques in this valuable workbook. She also highly recommends it to anyone wishing to pursue the self-help avenue. If you would like to talk to someone about your feelings of being depressed, Caron would be willing to listen, and help you get back on track to living a life of fulfillment.
