Time and the Dog: Society and Depression
The relationship of depression to contemporary capitalist society

As capitalism takes over all the hours of our conscious life, it is also invading our subconscious—there is no time to take respite from the economic treadmill. The rising mental health problems throughout the world can no longer be seen as personal or family failings, but as responses to a desperate political and economic system. Maria Rita Kehl is a psychoanalyst who has worked with depressive patients for many years. In this groundbreaking new book, she examines the relationship of depression to contemporary capitalism. She begins by exploring the symbolic role of melancholy from the classical era to the middle of the twentieth century, showing how depression moved from the public realm of the aesthetic field to the privacy of the psychoanalytic clinic. This is followed by an examination of the role of time in our understanding of depression, drawing on the work of Benjamin and Bergson. Finally, Kehl looks at the clinical treatment of depression from the psychoanalytic perspective, drawing a distinction between the subjective and circumstantial dynamics. This book will change how we see depression today.

Living the Life That You Are: Finding Wholeness When You Feel Lost, Isolated, and Afraid

Living the Life That You Are weaves together psychology, ancient wisdom, and honest personal reflections into a coherent and inspiring whole. If loneliness is the great disease of the modern age, then Nic’s heartfelt plea for self-love is much-needed medicine.”
—Jeff Foster, author of Falling in Love with Where You Are

When you feel isolated and alone, the world can seem like an enormously unfamiliar, confusing, and scary place. You may get caught up in your own thoughts and feelings, and even avoid connecting with others out of fear of being criticized, misunderstood, or uncomfortable—which only leads to more isolation and loneliness. This cycle can be hard to break, but you are not doomed to endure this painful condition of feeling lost and alone. This book can help you find authentic peace, confidence, and connection with all that is, right here and now.

Living the Life That You Are examines the modern-day dilemma of loneliness, revealing that its root cause is the belief that we’re all separate individuals bound by personal limitations. We feel disconnected and incomplete, assuming that life’s fullness exists somewhere out there, and that we must be, do, or have more for lasting fulfillment. But the truth is, despite our limited appearance, we are actually boundless. There is no divide between our internal and external worlds. This is the ancient philosophy of non-duality—we are the wholeness we are seeking.

The life that you are is all that is right now: every texture, flavor, fragrance, sight, and sound in their abundance. Using radical mindfulness—a combination of mindfulness and non-dual self-inquiry—this book will guide you toward awakening to the transformative truth and love that is your foundational being. By learning to observe, acknowledge, and question your experience without censorship or prejudice, your sense of being lost and alone will give way to an enriching and comforting state of communion with all.

The Kefir Solution
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is the most common gastrointestinal disorder in the world, with approximately 15 to 20 percent of the Western world suffering from this condition. Patients with IBS are prescribed more medications, account for greater overall direct healthcare costs, miss more work days, have lower work productivity and higher suicide rates than patients without it. But the causes and cures of IBS have been shrouded in mystery – until now.

Cutting-edge scientific research finds that IBS is nearly always connected to anxiety and depression, through something called the gut–brain axis. Heal the gut and you can heal the brain – and vice versa. This book offers a natural healing protocol that alleviates IBS – and the anxiety and depression that nearly always accompany it.

Working with the powerful natural probiotic kefir, Shann Nix Jones has developed the Happy Gut Solution – an all-natural and chemical-free method to help heal IBS. It is a method that has plenty of health benefits and no negative side-effects. The Kefir Solution contains practical information as well as stories, tips, and recipes, in a conversational, easy-to-read book that combines common sense and uncommon science to help you and your family.

With more than 1 in 10 new parents experiencing post-natal depression and anxiety, and after suffering the traumatic birth of her son, and herself being diagnosed with post-natal anxiety and birth trauma, Anna Williamson uncovers the real thoughts, feelings and behaviours that many of us experience in those first few weeks and months after becoming a parent.

From 'I'm struggling to love my baby' to 'I miss my old life' and 'Will I ever feel like “me” again?' to 'I'm anxious about having sex' this book will help new parents cope with the often taboo topics that we ALL encounter.

A therapist in your pocket, meaning you don't have to face one of life's most momentous experiences alone, or fear being judged of the weird and often worrying irrational thoughts that plague our frazzled minds. Mental health for new mums (and dads) is a thing ­- a big thing - and it's time we all stopped suffering in silence.

It takes time to adjust to this new identity and role - whether it's making new friends, coping with changing relationships, breast and bottle feeding anxiety, going back to work worries, or the whole shift being a new parent poses mentally. Breaking Mum and Dad is a little pocket guide of empathy, sympathy and above all, hope.

The Cognitive Psychology of Depression: A Special Issue of Cognition and Emotion
Of all the psychiatric disorders, depression is by far the most common, affecting between 8 and 18 percent of the general population at some point in their lives. Although the heterogeneity of the affective disorders makes it unlikely that a single set of factors can adequately explain the full range of phenomena associated with depression, there has been a swell of research over the past two decades designed to examine cognitive factors in the etiology, maintenance, and treatment of this disorder.
Whereas early work in this area tended to examine responses of depressed persons to questionnaires assessing cognitions, more recent research has drawn both theoretically and methodologically from experimental cognitive psychology, including work in information processing, social cognition, and cognitive neuropsychology.
In an effort to examine the current state of research and theory in this area, the National Institute of Mental Health held a workshop on "The Cognitive Psychology of Depression" - this special issue is a result of that workshop. The papers represent a wide range of approaches to examining the relation between cognition and depression, and include studies assessing attention, memory, and schematic processing of both self-referential and neutral information, as well as examinations of transient mood effects and underlying brain activity. Moreover, the papers cover a diverse set of samples (including children and young and middle-aged adults, and unipolar depressed, bipolar depressed, and formerly depressed individuals) and encompass a range of severity of depressive symptoms.
Finally, a closing commentary identifies and discusses issues raised by this group of papers, and offers suggestions concerning fruitful directions for future research in the study of cognition and depression.
