Description

Overcoming Depression and Low Mood: A Five Areas Approach, Fourth Edition uses the proven and trusted five areas model of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to help people assess and manage depression and low mood to change how they feel. Written by an award-winning expert, this volume is one of the most popular books in the Overcoming series.

The book comprises a series of chapters for therapists to work through with their patients. The text addresses issues ranging from low mood through to severe depressive episodes. The book’s patient-friendly approach features illustrations, questions, and exercises to enhance the therapeutic experience. Patients who follow the plan will see positive results.

This fourth edition retains its successful format but includes new material on care-givers, medication, staying well, planning for the future, and low-intensity and very low-intensity self help.
