Comparative Treatments of Depression Hardcover – June 15, 2002

by Mark A. Reinecke PhD (Editor),‎ Michael R. Davison PsyD (Editor)

This volume comprehensively compares and contrasts alternative models of and treatment approaches to clinical depression. Each contributor, a recognized expert in their modality, analyzes the same case and provides:

  • an overview of the treatment model
  • empirical evidence for both the model and treatment derived from it
  • treatment strategies and interventions, including termination issues, relapse prevention, and recommendations for follow-up care

Among the 12 approaches presented are Object Relations, Cognitive Therapies, Schema-Focused, Couple and Family, Integrative Psychotherapy as well as Psychopharmacology. A significant contribution to this volume is the chapter on cultural considerations for understanding, assessing and treating depression.
