This bestselling, classic work offers a definitive presentation of the theory and practice of cognitive therapy for depression. Aaron T. Beck and his associates set forth their seminal argument that depression arises from a "cognitive triad" of errors and from the idiosyncratic way that one infers, recollects, and generalizes. From the initial interview to termination, many helpful case examples demonstrate how cognitive-behavioral interventions can loosen the grip of "depressogenic" thoughts and assumptions. Guidance is provided for working with individuals and groups to address the full range of problems that patients face, including suicidal ideation and possible relapse.

The use of behavioral and cognitive techniques for treating depression has yielded exciting results. Research studies throughout the world have found that Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is as effective in the short term as anti-depressant drugs and has longer-lasting effects than medication.The Psychological Treatment of Depressiondescribes the wide range of cognitive behavioral techniques in great detail, enabling practitioners new to CBT to feel confident using them and those already using CBT to update their skills. Since the publication of the first edition in 1984, which sold nearly 20,000 copies, extensive research has continued to be conducted on the outcome of cognitive therapy. In this second edition, the author discusses these recent advances and theories, and provides details of new techniques to use in an in-patient setting. He has also added an introductory chapter for readers who may be less familiar with issues relating to depression. Basic and clear, the textcontains explicit case studies, sample dialogues, checklists, and other helpful aids. The book is a highly effective working manual--a field guide for all mental health practitioners in any discipline who want to incorporate the successful methods of CBT into their work with depressed patients.
