  1. Actually, most of the books, if not all of them, focus on cognitive behavior modification. Look closely at the books and you will see this is true. I don’t even own any books that suggest anti-depressants as a first choice. However many of these books will mention non-prescription medication like Fish Oil. But I will find some more titles for you and add them to the resource list.The first book by Dorothy Rowe is exceptional,

    Are you interested in any books that have a spiritual emphasis? God bless.

  2. Thank you for this list! Do you have any recommendations for books not focussing on using medication but will focus on Cognitive Behavior for instance? Looking forward to your reaction.

I would love to hear your thoughts. Don't make be beg.
