Depression: A Primer for Practitioners

About the eBook

"The idea of a highly accessible resource on depression is a good one. . . It fills an important gap in the literature and represents a very helpful addition to the library of clinicians-expert and non-expert alikewho could benefit from an accessible, up-to-date primer (or refresher) in the formulation, diagnosis, and treatment of depression."

-Stephen Swallow, Ph.D., Private Practice, Oakville, Ontario

"While there have been lengthy handbooks and a variety of specialized books, I do not think anyone has had quite this idea of writing a primer. It combines research and practice in a very interesting manner. . . The up-to-date research is one of the major strengths. The authors clearly know their material and are conversant with the major findings of the field. . . It reflects a masterful knowledge of the current literature and communicates it very well."

-Ed Beckham, PH.D., Clinical Psychologist, Psychiatric Associates, Inc.

Every health care provider and mental health professional will encounter clients struggling with depression, yet many of these professionals don′t receive a thorough grounding on theory, research, and clinical guidelines regarding depression, and those who do sometimes have trouble keeping abreast of the literature (a literature that includes over 60,000 empirical publications since 1980!). This book provides a handy reference for such practitioners. This brief, practical guide provides an introduction or refresher on depression that is research-based yet accessible, practical, and easy to read and consult.
