How to Shed Mental Health Labels and Create Personal MeaningBook - 2012
In this provocative and path-breaking distillation of a career spent working with individuals seeking help with mood and motivation, Eric Maisel reveals the implications of one of the era's most dramatic cultural shifts. In recent decades, much of the unhappiness inherent in the human condition has been monetized into the disease of depression and related "disorders." Maisel persuasively critiques this sickness model and prescribes a potent new approach that updates the best ideas ofmodern psychology. The result is a revolutionary reimagining of life's difficulties and a liberating model of self-care that optimizes our innate human ability to create meaning and seize opportunity -- in any circumstance.
