James Gordon: The Seven Stages of Healing
Through his pioneering research and experience in the field, Dr. James Gordon has established himself as a leading voice on how we treat and prevent depression. Yet it is his own personal experience that has provided many of his key insights for helping us deal with depression—and inspired him to challenge common wisdom about how to approach this misunderstood condition. As Sounds True producer Stephen Lessard learned, “Dr. Gordon’s personal journey through depression has informed his professional opinion about how we can find the inner resources to promote our own healing.” In this selection from the audio program Freedom from Depression, Dr. Gordon gives an overview of each step of what he calls “the seven stages of healing”—and how they can help lead us out of the wilderness of depression.
