From initial consultation to termination of treatment, psychologists and other mental health practitioners make a series of crucial decisions to determine the progress and therapy of the patient. These decisions have varied implications such as the clinical course of the patient, the efficacy and efficiency of the treatment, and the cost of the sessions. Thus, the decisions made by mental health professionals need to be accurate and consistent, respecting a series of
guidelines that will ultimately benefit the patient. This is the first in a series of guidebooks that is designed to do just that by providing practitioners with some structure in the development of treatment programmes. Previous guidelines have been based on consensus panels of experts or on the
opinions of membership groups, causing guidelines to be very far off from the findings of empirical research. Here, guidelines are presented in terms of treatment principles rather than in terms of specific treatment models or theories, and they do not favour one theory of psychotherapy over another. Instead, they define strategies and considerations that can be woven into comprehensive treatment programmes. The entire series of guidebooks will cover numerous topics, including anxiety
disorders, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, and treatment of serious mental disorders. This volume will cover in detail the nature of depression, issues in treatment research, contemporary treatments, and implications for education and training. It is ideal for postgraduates and professionals in the mental health
field and is intended to provide important background on treatment of non-bipolar depressive disorders.

"The current volume reflects an extension of the authors' long-standing clinical and research involvement in systematically selecting the optimal treatment for any given patient. This book reflects their firsthand experience with depressed patients, within both clinical research contexts. In addition to evaluating the research methodology that has been used to study treatment efficacy, the book also contains an invaluable review of what is known both theoretically and empirically about depression and its treatment. In this book, the authors provide us with a creative blending of research and practice. There is much in this volume to which clinicians can relate. The appeal of this book is very clear: If you are a practitioner who wants to be informed by research or a researcher who wants to stay close to clinical reality, this book deserves a very special place on your bookshelf." -- Marvin Goldfried, Psychotherapy Research, 11(2) 2001<br>
