|I Don't Want to Talk About It: Overcoming the Secret Legacy of Male Depression
Lowest new price: $7.98
Lowest used price: $0.01
List price: $17.00
Author: Terrence Real
Twenty years of experience treating men and their families has convinced psychotherapist Terrence Real that depression is a silent epidemic in men -- that men hide their condition from family, friends, and themselves to avoid the stigma of depression's "un-manliness." Problems that we think of as typically male -- difficulty with intimacy, workaholism, alcoholism, abusive behavior, and rage-are really attempts to escape depression. And these escape attempts only hurt the people men love and pass their condition on to their children.
This groundbreaking book is the "pathway out of darkness" that these men and their families seek. Real reveals how men can unearth their pain, heal themselves, restore relationships, and break the legacy of abuse. He mixes penetrating analysis with compelling tales of his patients and even his own experiences with depression as the son of a violent, depressed father and the father of two young sons.
When Terrence Real was studying to be a therapist, he accepted the notion that women suffered depression at rates several times that of men. Now he believes that conventional wisdom is wrong, that there has been a great cultural cover-up of depression in men. Real is convinced of the existence of a mental illness that is passed from fathers to sons in the form of rage, workaholism, distanced relationships from loved ones, and self-destructive behaviors ranging from stupid choices at work and in love to drug and alcohol abuse. Men reading I Don't Want to Talk About It will probably recognize themselves in every chapter, while women will recognize their partners--and, of course, both sexes will see their fathers in a new light.

Author: Lynn Clark
SOS Help For Emotions - Managing Anxiety, Anger, And Depression is a self-help book that is fun to read and easy to apply. By understanding and applying insights and techniques from this book, you will learn useful self-help methods from cognitive behavior therapy. You will gain insight into changing your thoughts and feelings and for becoming more successful in attaining your goals. Knowing the five steps of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) will help you to deal with difficult people more effectively. Most people believe that bad events (such as a large credit card debt) and unpleasant people (an overly critical boss) directly cause high levels of anxiety, anger, depression and other miserable feelings. However, SOS teaches what we believe and tell ourselves about the bad events and those difficult people primarily determine our upsetness. When you believe that other people and bad events directly cause your emotions, how do you go about helping yourself to feel better? You cannot help yourself feel better. You are stuck in a rut if you believe that you must change other people or the world before you can feel better. Some people think getting very angry will cause others to change. However, others will not change as a result of your anger. Successful people find a way to change their anger into calmness and then to go about achieving their goals. SOS teaches you the steps for managing anxiety, anger, depression, and other unpleasant feelings. Our Beliefs and Self-Talk primarily cause our feelings and behavior and not bad events and difficult people. SOS teaches the reality that we are responsible for managing our feelings and behavior. SOS was updated in 2008 with the best self-help techniques from cognitive behavior therapy, the most effective form of modern therapy. Used internationally by adults, older teens, and counselors, SOS is available in English, Spanish, Turkish, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. Included are exercises, quizzes, 100 engaging illustrations, and accompanying free resources at SOS Programs. Visit the Amazon Lynn Clark author page to learn more.
