Depression is a complex illness that presents in a myriad of ways and affects more than 350 million people worldwide. While medications and conventional cognitive-behavioral approaches to the treatment of depression have success, for many people these kinds of one-size-fits-all treatments are not enough to alleviate the symptoms of depression or help them find a long-term path toward wellness. In The Complete Guide to Self-Management of Depression: Practical and Proven Methods, Dr. Harpreet S. Duggal offers several evidence-based treatments for depression and presents them in a practical, easy-to-use format that can be incorporated into day-to-day self-management of depression. Self-management is increasingly becoming the standard of care in people with long-standing medical conditions, and it broadens the narrow perspective of self-help beyond the traditional treatment of symptoms to include behavioral methods, positive psychology interventions, mindfulness, and complementary and alternative medicine approaches for treating depression. Finally, besides a focus on treating symptoms, it also addresses lifestyle changes, social relationships, communication, problem-solving, and elements of wellness and recovery. In contrast to the traditional one-size-fits-all approach of self-help books on depression, The Complete Guide to Self-Management of Depression offers a menu of options for self-management of depression and provides guidance on whenand when notto use or combine particular strategies. Placing those who suffer from depression in the drivers seat of self-management can help them build confidence and prepare for the journey of managing depression.

It is common for a doctor or healthcare professional to see an individual with a chronic health condition only a few times a year for a brief office appointment. Yet, the individual has to live with the health condition 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So, who really is in charge of managing the health condition? The individual has to "micro-manage" their condition, while healthcare professionals can provide advice on treatment approaches or the "macro-management" of the chronic health condition. Promoting Self-Management of Chronic Health Conditions covers a range of topics related to self-management-theories and practice, interventions that have been scientifically tested, and information that individuals with specific conditions should know (or be taught by healthcare professionals). Data suggest that currently a majority of individuals in the U.S. has a chronic health condition, and as society ages and healthcare continues to improve individuals' life-spans, more people will experience a chronic health condition. Health systems need to shift from an acute care model of treatment to a chronic care treatment model, in view of this trend. The expanding need for the development and scientific analysis of formal self-management programs accompany this increase in chronic health conditions. This book serves the critical purpose of helping to increase understanding of self-management and how healthcare providers can empower individuals with chronic health conditions to self-manage.
