In this video, author and depression counselor Douglas Bloch talks about research that shows that people who suffer fro depression can still experience a good amount of happiness in their lives. This is because even though 50% of our happiness potential is determined our genes, another 40% is determined by “intentional activities” that focus on how we think and how we act. This is in accordance with the depression recovery program that I write about in the book Healing From Depression.

I give thanks to Blake, whose generous contribution helped to fund the making of this video.
