I Don't Want To Talk About It: Overcoming The Secret Legacy Of Male Depression

Not yet rated | write a review

Each year, millions of men and women fall prey to depression. While the disorder has been called "psychiatry's most treatable condition," less than one in five get help. In recent years, the silence surrounding depression in women has begun to lift, but only now, with this powerful groundbreaking work, does psychotherapist Terrence Real expose a virtual epidemic of the disorder in men.

Twenty years of experience treating men and their families has convinced Terrence Real that there are two forms of depression: "overt" and "covert." Feeling the stigma of depression's unmanliness," many men hide their condition not only from family and friends but even from themselves. Attempts to escape depression fuel many of the problems we think of as typically male -- difficulty with intimacy, workaholism, alcoholism, abusive behavior, and rage. By directing their pain outward, depressed men hurt the people they love, and, most tragically, pass their condition on to their children.

A master storyteller, Terrence Real mixes penetrating analysis with poignant, compelling tales of the men and women whom he treats. He writes with passion and searing clarity about his own experiences with depression, as the son of a depressed, violent father, and the father of two young sons.

Peggy Papp of the Ackerman Family Institute calls this book "a pathway out of the darkness." Real teaches us how men can unearth their pain, heal themselves, restore relationships, and break the legacy of abuse. I Don't Want to Talk About It offers great wisdom, hope, and practical guidance to men and their families. This is one of the most important and straightforward books ever written about men.

From Our Editors

Millions of men and women fall into depression each year. Although it is a highly treatable disease, only one-in-five get help. While breakthroughs have been made in treating women, little has been done to help men by comparison. Psychotherapist Terrence Real has 20 years' experience treating men and families and has concluded that there are two forms of depression: "covert" and "overt." I Don't Want to Talk About It: Overcoming the Secret Legacy of Male Depression mixes the author's tales of men and women who he treats with his own experiences with depression. A groundbreaking examination of this common disorder.
