- Publisher out of stock
While the efficacy of cognitive therapy for depression is well established, every clinician is likely to encounter patients who do not respond to ""standard"" protocols. In this highly practical volume, leading authorities provide a unified set of clinical guidelines for conceptualizing, assessing, and treating challenging presentations of depression. Presented are detailed, flexible strategies for addressing severe, chronic, partially remitted, or recurrent depression, as well as psychiatric comorbidities, medical conditions, and family problems that may complicate treatment. The book also offers essential knowledge and tools for delivering competent care to specific populations of depressed patients: ethnic minorities; lesbian, gay, and bisexual people; adolescents; and older adults.

"This volume focuses on key, increasingly acknowledged challenges in treating depression. The coverage is thorough and comprehensive, with chapters on a wide range of difficult-to-treat forms of depression, comorbid disorders, and special populations, all written by leading researchers in the field. A particular strength of each chapter is a detailed and fully-worked-through case example, plus a brief review of the empirical evidence. This is an excellent resource for therapists working with depressed clients."--Edward R. Watkins, PhD, Mood Disorders Centre, School of Psychology, University of Exeter, United Kingdom
"This book is a major accomplishment in the cognitive therapy field. Whisman's contributors are leading authorities, and the range and scope of the text will make it highly useful for both practitioners and researchers. This is a 'must read' for psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers who want to review the latest developments in cognitive therapy."--James P. McCullough, Jr., PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, Virginia Commonwealth University
"This book is a most welcome complement to the many excellent basic guides to the cognitive therapy (CT) of depression. It is an excellent choice for an advanced course in psychotherapy or CT, and it will find a place close at hand on the bookshelves of clinicians who wish to provide CT for depressed clients experiencing a wide range of comorbid disorders and complicating circumstances. Enlisting the efforts of world experts in CT, Whisman delivers an evidence-based, comprehensive toolbox, filled with vivid, edifying case examples and concrete, skill-building practice dialogues."--Robert J. DeRubeis, PhD, Department of Psychology and Associate Dean for the Social Sciences, University of Pennsylvania
