Hope Prevails: Insights from a Doctor's Personal Journey Through Depression Paperback - 2016

by Michelle Bengtson; Foreword by Marilyn Meberg


From the publisher

Neuropsychologist Offers Hope to Those Struggling with Depression

As a board-certified neuropsychologist, Dr. Michelle Bengtson sees the devastation of depression. Early on, she practiced the most effective treatments and prescribed them for her clients. But when she experienced depression herself, she found that the treatments she had recommended were lacking. Her experience showed her the missing component in treating depression.

In Hope Prevails, Dr. Bengtson writes with deep compassion, blending her training and faith, to offer readers a hope grounded in God's love and grace. She helps readers understand what depression is, how it affects them spiritually, and what, by God's grace, it cannot do. The result is an approach that offers the hope of release, not just the management of symptoms.

For those who struggle with depression and those who want to help them, Hope Prevails offers hope for the future.

From the rear cover

"There are many fine, worthy, and insightful books written about depression, but in my view, Dr. Bengtson's trumps them all."--from the foreword by Marilyn Meberg, Women of Faith speaker and author of Constantly Craving

As a board-certified neuropsychologist, Dr. Michelle Bengtson believed she was prescribing the most effective treatments for her clients who struggled with depression. But when she experienced debilitating depression herself, she found that the treatments she had recommended weren't helping her the way she expected. She was determined to find out what was missing.

With the deep compassion of someone who has been there, Dr. Bengtson blends her training and that vital missing piece she discovered to offer you a hope grounded in God's love and grace. She helps you understand what depression is, how it affects you spiritually, and what, by God's grace, depression cannot do. The result is an approach that offers not just the management of symptoms but the hope of true release.

"Everyone who suffers or knows someone who suffers needs to read this book. If I had read it twenty-three years ago, I never would have attempted suicide!"--Anonymous Reader

"I have never read a book that deals with the spiritual aspect of healing as thoroughly as does Hope Prevails. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has tasted the pain of depression or knows a friend who is depressed."--Gary Chapman, PhD, author of The 5 Love Languages

"It's hard to find a person who will be so honest about his or her own struggle in order to help you with yours. It's a double blessing when that person also possesses the expertise, experience, and grace to meet your needs."--Jan Greenwood, pastor of Pink (Gateway Women) at Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas, and author of Women at War

"Nowhere else have I found an author who speaks to the difficulty of depression with this level of specific explanation, insight, and hope. On those days when you're tired and weary and feel like you just can't keep going, this book is like having a friend right there with you."--Jo Ann Fore, author of the award-winning When a Woman Finds Her Voice


Dr. Michelle Bengtson (PhD, Nova Southeastern University) has been a neuropsychologist for more than twenty years. She completed postdoctoral training at both the Henry Ford Hospital and the University of Alabama Health Sciences Center. She lives in the Dallas/Fort Worth area with her husband, their two sons, and two dogs. She offers more hope at www.drmichellebengtson.com.
