NCLA Review -Dr. Stone, a psychologist and marriage and family therapist wrote this book in layman's language. It is a "must read" for anyone dealing with depression or anyone familiar with someone afflicted with this malfunction of the brain. He uses a Christian perspective throughout. He says depression "does not mean accepting helplessness. It calls for new skills to cope with the loss of old dreams and goals." He says, "those who struggle with depression treat themselves badly, sometimes harshly. Frequently they impose an impossible, perfectionistic standard on themselves." The book uses a format easy to understand with specific directions at each chapter's end. Dr. Stone has had first hand experience himself with depression and used many of these ideas and coping skills. Defeating Depression would be a helpful addition for every church library. It would make an excellent study guide for group discussion as well as being an excellent gift idea. Rating: 4 —RE ( )
