Adapting Cognitive Therapy for Depression
Managing Complexity and Comorbidity
by Edited by Mark A. Whisman

In this highly practical volume, leading authorities provide a unified set of clinical guidelines for conceptualizing, assessing, and treating challenging presentations of depression.

Full Description:   

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.

It will find a place close at hand on the bookshelves of all 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."
