How can it be that a seemingly depressed person, one who shows clinical symptoms, doesn't respond to anti-depressants or traditional psychoanalytical methods of therapy? Hilary Jacobs Hendel shows how we should focus not on CBT or medication, but on our emotions as a direct pathway to healing psychological suffering. We were all taught that our thoughts affect our emotions, but in truth it is largely the other way around: we have to experience our emotions to truly understand our thoughts and our full selves. In 'It's Not Always Depression', she reveals her most effective techniques for putting us back in touch with the emotions we too often deny, thwart or exclude for fearing we won't be accepted or loved - methods which can be used by anyone, any time, anywhere.
