Depression - A Cognitive Approach
Based on cognitive behavioural psychotherapy, this resource book describes how to treat mild to moderate depression.
Aimed at the professional with little or no experience of treating depression, it provides detailed instructions on recognising a client\'s profile of depression, identifying dysfunctional thinking patterns and following through the ten steps for treatment.
The methods described can be used with clients exhibiting mild to moderate depression in most therapeutic situations and also for people suffering from severe depression if they are in an in-patient setting.

Part 1 contains basic information about depression, cognitive therapy and other approaches to treatment;
Part 2 gives practical guidance in 10 steps to help clients overcome depression;
