Informative chapters reveal the hidden psychological mechanisms that cause depression and demonstrate powerful ways to strengthen your resilience in the face of life’s misfortunes. Kabat-Zinn lends his calm, familiar voice to the accompanying CD of guided meditations, making this a complete package for anyone looking to regain a sense of balance and contentment.
This course is based on the book, The Mindful Way Through Depression: Freeing Yourself From Chronic Unhappiness created by Williams, Mark, Ph.D., Teasdale, John, Ph.D., Segal, Zindel, Ph.D., and Kabat-Zinn, John, Ph.D.
