About this work


"Depression: The way out of your prison gives us a way of understanding our depression which matches our experience and which enables us to take charge of our life and change it. Dorothy Rowe shows us that depression is not an illness or a mental disorder but a defence against pain and fear which we can use whenever we suffer a disaster and discover that our life is not what we thought it was."--Jacket.
