A revolutionary approach to treating anxiety and depressive disorders
Daniel G. Amen, M.D. and Lisa C. Routh, M.D.
Anxiety and depression are not the result of bad character or weak will. When either are diagnosed and treated correctly, the quality of life for millions of suffers, and their families, can change dramatically.
Healing Anxiety and Depression is based on the authors’ discoveries that
- Anxiety and Depression commonly occur together
- These illnesses are, in large part, the result of brain dysfunction
- These illnesses occur as specific types related to multiple brain-system problems
Dr. Amen and Dr. Routh explain the science behind these discoveries in terms that will be understood and appreciated by both those who suffer from these illnesses and the clinicians who treat them. Case histories include before-and-after brain SPECT scans of individuals who have been successfully treated.
A detailed questionnaire enables readers to identify which type of disorder they (or someone they know) may have. A proven treatment protocol is described for each of seven major categories.
Those who suffer from anxiety and depression will find this ground-breaking resource a powerful tool that will provide help and hope today.
