Summary This is a clear, practical resource for the millions of people plagued by persistent mild depression. One of the most underrecognized and undertreated mood disorders, dysthymia can be treated through self-help measures, psychotherapy, medication, or a combination of all three. This book is designed to offer general information on dysthymia and outline specific measures individuals can take in order to reclaim a positive outlook on life. Practical advice and thorough research will make this the ultimate guide for those who might otherwise have resigned themselves to a lifetime of apathy, lethargy, and pessimism
