Uncovering Happiness: Overcoming Depression with Mindfulness and Self-Compassion
In this show, Dr. Elisha Goldstein, psychologist, author and Co-founder of The Center for Mindful Living in Los Angeles, discusses his powerful and newly released book, Uncovering Happiness: Treating Depression with Mindfulness and Self-Compassion. Whether you or a family member has suffered with depression, uses medication to relieve your pain, or is already seeking help as a way to cope with suffering, this will help you. You will hear about additional proven strategies to foster your recovery of hope and happiness.

In the back and forth with host, Dr. Suzanne Phillips, Dr. Goldstein makes it clear that depression is not your fault. He considers the way in which our brains are conditioned to respond to triggers with negative thoughts, emotions, sensations, and behaviors that activate a depression loop. He draws upon research to clarify mindful thinking that identifies and changes negative thoughts and habits in a way that deactivates them. He describes our brains five natural anti-depressants and exemplifies their use. Rarely is someone so clear about the rationale and research behind ways to uncover happiness.
