Treatment for Chronic Depression


'The Cognitive Behavioral Analysis System of Psychotherapy (CBASP) is novel, systematic, and has undergone empirical evaluation. Now McCullough has provided an additional tool to aid in the dissemination of this new evidence-based treatment for chronic depression. A gifted clinician and teacher, McCullough not only has determined what needs to be taught, but also has developed an excellent method for doing so. The Skills Training Manual offers clinicians instant feedback on their mastery of key CBASP concepts. The exercises are challenging, while the feedback is gentle and encouraging.'

'In his creative blending of cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal strategies, McCullough speaks directly to the clinician, clearly outlining and illustrating how to intervene effectively when working with chronically depressed patients. Recognizing that the feeling of not being able to get what one wants is at the core of this depression, McCullough provides clinically sound guidelines for helping patients to overcome the cognitive, affective, and behavioral obstacles to having their needs met.'
