Kicking Depression's Ugly Butt

Tried and True Methods for Outsmarting Depression

by: Dr. Robert Westermeyer

Kicking Depression's Ugly Butt takes a "divide and conquer" approach to defeating depression. Dr. Robert Westermeyer, a San Diego psychologist specializing in cognitive therapy, has assembled this self-help book that mirrors the successful cognitive therapy program he designed for a respected psychiatric hospital. After reading Kicking Depression's Ugly Butt, many readers will have a completely different understanding of why depression endures. More importantly, they will have the tools to beat depression.

Dozens of effective strategies, solidly based on research in clinical psychology, tackle the factors that can make depression linger. These strategies can stop the spiral of depression and increase a person's resilience against future episodes. Kicking Depression's Ugly Butt is easy to read and approaches a difficult subject with a touch of humor and plenty of encouragement.

"If the title of this book doesn't grab you, the information inside will! Dr. Westermeyer explains compactly and in daily language what depression is and how to get rid of it for good. He covers everything needed, and even touches on the scientific foundation of his work. However, he does not overwhelm the depressed reader. His extensive experience helping the severely depressed, his compassion, and his zeal for kicking depression clearly shine throughout this valuable book!"

"Cognitive therapy for depression has proven effective as a psychological treatment for mood problems. Dr. Westermeyer's writing not only offers help to people grappling with depression, but also depression's "ugly little friends", such as anxiety, internalized anger, and relapse. His writing conveys enthusiasm and a genuine interest in helping people live happier lives."
