How Depression takes hold
Audio 1 of the “What is Depression” Podcasts

How then does depression take hold – according to the Human Givens approach and as I have experienced it from the many that have come to me seriously depressed and out of hope?  It is all about useless worrying as depression is a brain that is absolutely exhausted, by worrying incessantly and without any result or resolution.

  3. And then we dream too much which is exhausting.
