Dr. Heitler discusses a treatment for situational depression (even when we don’t know it is situational!) WITHOUT psychopharmacology. Instead, she offers three prescriptions without pills, outlining these prescriptions using an example from her practice.            She shows how investigating what makes us angry or upset can help us to re-empower ourselves, and our mental health. Susan Heitler, Ph.D., a Harvard and NYU-educated clinical psychologist, writes a Psychology Today blog that has received over 7.5 million reads. Dr. Heitler first earned recognition when her book “From Conflict to Resolution” brought understandings of collaborative conflict resolution from the world of legal and business mediation to the practice of psychotherapy. Her “Power of Two” and “Power of Two Workbook”– published in six foreign language editions–plus her interactive marriage education website www.PowerOfTwoMarriage.com, teach the communication skills for marriage success. Dr. Heitler’s most recent book and website combo, “Prescriptions Without Pills,” offers self-help versions of the techniques she uses in her clinical practice–techniques for relieving depression, anger, and anxiety plus strategies for sustaining well-being.
