"Catching Happiness"

Listen to our monthly conference call, "Catching Happiness,"  in which  I interviewed Barbara Altman, author of the book, Cry Depression, Celebrate Recovery.

In this call we explored an approach to growth that rejected pathologizing termonology in favor of a language of hope, individual character strengths, and personal longings directed toward meaningful goals.

As a child, Barbara dreamed of earning a degree in music and becoming a concert pianist.  Instead, at age 16 she was called into the principal’s office, and labeled "schizophrenic".  Come and learn how her strengths in music, love of learning, persistence, and a caring community helped her transform from mental illness to health. Today, she is a valued contributor to the community.
