This is a popular and practical guide to working with people suffering from depression. Greatly revised, expanded and updated it: explores in depth the biopsychosocial processes underpinning depression; shows how a compassionate mind approach can be incorporated into different types of therapy; includes a new chapter focusing on the role of the therapeutic relationship, including therapeutic dialogues; and more.
