Treatment of Psychosocial Risk Factors in Depression (Paperback)
Available from our distributor; usually Ships in 1-5 Days
This innovative book explores a range of well-established risk factors for clinical depression and links them to targeted, evidence-based treatments. Clinical depression is the single leading cause of mental health disease in the world, and the need for effective treatments has never been greater. In recent years, the volume of theory and research on a range of psychosocial risk factors for depression has grown dramatically. Fortunately, many of these risk factors are modifiable, making them ideal targets for treatment. Unlike other books that focus on intervention from a specific conceptual vantage point, such as cognitive-behavioral or acceptance and commitment therapy, this book's innovative approach targets the client's underlying vulnerability or risk factor and links it to specific, evidence-based treatment. In each chapter, leading authorities on a particular risk factor evaluate the literature, discuss implications for treatment, and present a case example to demonstrate how therapists can use the techniques with clients.
