A Psychologist's Personal Journey Out of His Depression, Rev. Edition
Norman S. Endler
Darkness is the
compelling personal account of his own mental illness by an eminent
clinical psychologist and professor of psychology. Dr. Norman Endler relates the story of his depressive breakdown,
including his early symptoms, his family's reactions, the effect on his
work and relationships, the prognosis of the illness, his therapy, and
his ultimate recovery.
In addition, Dr. Endler places his individual story of mental illness
in a larger context. He examines the nature, antecedents, and treatment
of depression in general, offering valuable and accessible information
and hope to those who suffer from its effects. Dr. Endler
also provides valuable insights on controversial topics, such as the
stigma attached to mental illness, how the patient attempts to cope, and the
use of drugs and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in treatment.
