Treating Depression provides a detailed description of contemporary cognitive behavioural approaches to understanding and treating depression. As well as traditional 'Beckian' CBT, chapters cover acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), metacognitive therapy (MCT) and behavioural activation, all of which have established an evidence base for their effectiveness with various mental health disorders.

The book presents the theoretical background and evidence for each approach before moving on to describe the way in which it would be applied to a single case. This case is the same across all treatment chapters, allowing the reader to clearly appreciate the contrasting features of the treatments. Each treatment chapter can be used as a mini-manual for planning comparative trials and considering issues of treatment homogeneity, adherence and fidelity.

The contributors to this volume are internationally renowned. Their expertise allows readers a comprehensive understanding of depression and its treatment, as well as clear and practical guidance on how to use each treatment approach. Treating Depression provides an invaluable text for students, clinicians and researchers looking for a single comprehensive resource on leading, evidence-based approaches to depression.
