Insight Into Depression

Start to make sense of how you feel, and find hope that change is possible

Depression touches the lives of so many people, yet it is often feared, ignored or misunderstood.

Combining knowledge of individual experience, psychological research and professional practice, this book seeks to bring understanding and offer support and help to both sufferers and carers.

Issues covered include:

  • Recognising signs and symptoms
  • Exploding myths about depression
  • How depression speaks into and about our faith
  • Finding hope for climbing out of the darkness.

The authors offer a holistic and God-centred approach to moving through and beyond depression, combining "warmth and reassurance with practical suggestions and sane biblical insight" (from Foreword by Adrian Plass).

Co-author Chris Ledger worked for 16 years as a counsellor, supervisor and trainer in the NHS, and is now in private practice.

She enjoys speaking at Christian meetings both in the UK and abroad.

Chris has written two books, and co-authored some of the CWR Waverley Abbey Insight Series.

She leads the Prayer Ministry Team at Greyfriars Church, Reading, where she and her husband John are Licensed Lay Ministers.

Co-author Wendy Bray is a freelance writer and journalist.
