Uncovering Happiness: Overcoming Depression with Mindfulness and Self-Compassion
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.
