Product description

Review

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! I would thoroughly recommend this book to any other counsellor or psychotherapist. It is described on the back cover as 'outstanding', 'valuable' and an 'essential resource' and I would fully endorse all of these descriptions. I have been qualified for 10 years and have had extensive client experience, but feel I have gained so much from Gilbert's wisdom on this topic. It is excellent value for money and again I would recommend it to any practitioner. (The Independent Practitioner 2013-12-02)

This book takes the reader gently but thoroughly through the biopsychosocial processes that underpin depression. Excellent worksheets and information sheets are provided as appendices. [It] is a valuable resource for those who already work with depression and essential reading for those considering working in this field. (Therapy Today 2013-12-02)

Paul Gilbert provides the reader with a refreshingly wide-ranging, integrative and up-to-date understanding of the nature, assessment and treatment of depression. All psychological therapists will benefit from reading his important book. (Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal 2013-12-02)

Paul Gilbert writes in a scholarly, yet accessible, style on the bio-psychosocial perspectives of depression. I agree with him that knowledge of such areas is crucial to being able to work effectively with people experiencing depression. (Nursing Standard, 5 star review 2013-12-02)

Psychotherapy and Counselling for Depression, Third Edition by the distinguished psychologist, Paul Gilbert, is an outstanding contribution to the field. I read this book with great enthusiasm and interest - and, I must acknowledge - admiration. Gilbert provides the reader with a wide-ranging, integrative and completely up-to-date understanding of the nature of depression. He effortlessly weaves together evolutionary theory, cognitive theory, behavioral models, neuropsychology, attachment, compassionate mind, and social cognition, to provide us with the most comprehensive understanding that you will find in any one book. In addition, he provides us with very practical examples of how to help our patients who suffer from this debilitating and demoralizing problem. This is a book I will turn to often and require our trainees to know and to use. We owe Professor Gilbert our gratitude for providing us with a book that is filled with intelligence and wisdom and - at the same time - is immensely practical in its message. All clinicians will benefit from reading this valuable book. (Robert L. Leahy 2013-12-02) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
For treating depressive patients I used the standard works by A. Beck (Cognitive Therapy of Depression) and J. Beck (Cognitive Therapy. Basics and Beyond) until now. Gilbert gives a cognitive frame-work for the treatment, too, but he offers a much wider scope of ideas and approaches including a variety of insights from emotion and evolutionary psychocological research. He also adds some very practical examples from his own practice. I could integrate these ideas directly into my own practice.
An extremely helpful book for counseling depressive patients with a wide scope of ideas.

Valuable scientific information for treatment of depression indeed, however just as valuable for treating stress, anxiety or any other mind and brain related therapies. Contains an abundance of knowledge, information, suggestions and approaches. This is a book for the health care professional, and if you are such, a book you must have in your collection! Such an inspiring and fascinating read.
