Description

This is the first concise, accessible guide to a new approach to the problem of treating depression, and other psychological problems. Melanie Fennell describes cognitive therapy, its background, methods and clinical success. Cognitive therapy works on the assumption that depression is sustained by negative, and persistently self-reinforcing thoughts about oneself and the world. The goal of this therapy is to challenge the perception in sufferers of depression that their lives are a failure, the world is a hostile place, and the future is hopeless. First developed in the mid-70s, this is the first accessible and practical account of cognitive therapy for the widest range of people who regularly encounter the problems of depression and its treatment. Psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, social workers ,GPs and Occupational therapists.
