In this revolutionary new book on music and emotion, Dr. John A. Snyder shows us how not to get depressed. Drawing on 40 years of clinical experience as a psychotherapist, he demonstrates that antidepressant pills are dangerous, addictive, and don't work. What does work is listening to feelings and moving toward the very feelings we object to most. Snyder illustrates the special relationship between music and emotion by exploring the inner life of composer Gustav Mahler (1860-1911). Often wrongly portrayed as neurotic, Mahler was actually quite resilient, despite the many tragedies of his short life--a strength that came from his ability to listen to his darkest feelings. Overcoming Depression explains how all of us can access that same emotional strength in our own lives. Written in a direct, conversational style and filled with personal stories from Snyder's life and practice, the book is designed to be a bedside companion to which readers can return again and again for insight and support. Dr Snyder forcefully challenges what is currently being taught in professional schools and to the public about feeling states. His insights are invaluable for any person interested in how we understand and integrate feeling into our daily lives. I especially recommend this book to any professional who works with people suffering from depression." - Dr. William Packard, psychiatrist "Interwoven with Mahler's riveting life story, Dr. Snyder has another agenda: a sweeping analysis of how sadness--which should be viewed as a normal part of the life experience-- has been hijacked and given a new identity as a Disease" requiring "Treatment" with a drug, courtesy of the pharmaceutical industry. -Dr. Donald Kushon, psychiatrist " Like Leonard Bernstein in his Young People s Concerts," John Snyder makes Mahler come alive. He traces the emotional threads that are woven through Mahler's life-in-music, creating a tapestry that helps us better understand our own 'life symphony' and how to orchestrate it. The book's lively and straightforward style makes even subtle concepts easy to grasp." -Dr. Judith D. Fisher, psychiatrist "

Overcoming Depression - One Christian's Perspective is a personal testimony that details a depressive episode in my life that spanned 2= years. There were a number of factors that led to this depressive episode in my life. I could not eat, I cried a lot, and I felt worse than sad. There were some days I could not get out of bed, and I began to have thoughts of suicide. Nevertheless, I would not let the emotional despair of depression take hold of my life without taking a stand; so, I purposed in my heart to take this journey to overcome depression leaning and depending on the everlasting arms of Jesus Christ. This particular time in my life was an emotional roller coaster I had never ridden before. So, as I tell my testimony of overcoming depression and how God delivered me from going down into the emotional pit of depression, it is my prayer that you would also purpose in your heart to overcome because greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world (Jn. 4:4).

A first-of-its-kind exploration of black men and depression from an award-winning journalist The first book to reveal the depths of black men’s buried mental and emotional pain, Standing in the Shadows weaves the author’s story of his twenty-five-year struggle with depression with a cultural analysis of how the illness is perceived in the black community—and why nobody wants to talk about it.In mainstream society depression and mental illness are still somewhat taboo subjects; in the black community they are topics that are almost completely shrouded in secrecy. As a result, millions of black men are suffering in silence or getting treatment only in the most extreme circumstances—in emergency rooms, homeless shelters, and prisons. The neglect of emotional disorders among men in the black community is nothing less than racial suicide. John Head’s explosive work, Standing in the Shadows, addresses what can be done to help those who need it most.In this groundbreaking book, veteran journalist and award-winning author John Head argues that the problem can be traced back to slavery, when it was believed that blacks were unable to feel inner pain because they had no psyche. This myth has damaged generations of African American men and their families and has created a society that blames black men for being violent and aggressive without considering that depression might be a root cause. The author also explores the roles of the black church, the black family, and the changing nature of black women in American culture as a way to understand how the black community may have unwittingly helped push the emotional disorders of African American men further underground. As daring and powerful as Nathan McCall’s Makes Me Wanna Holler, Standing in the Shadows challenges both the African American community and the psychiatric community to end the silent suffering of black men by taking responsibility for a problem that’s been ignored for far too long. Additionally, Standing in the Shadows gives women an understanding of depression that enables them to help black men mend their relationships, their families, and themselves.
