Overview

This is the first in a series of guidebooks that is designed to provid e practitioners with some structure in the development of treatment pr ograms. Previous guidelines have been based on consensus panels of exp erts or on the opinions of membership groups, causing guidelines to be very far off from the findings of empirical research. Here, guideline s are presented in terms of treatment principles rather than in terms of specific treatment models or theories, and they do not favor one th eory of psychotherapy over another. This volume will cover in detail t he nature of depression, issues in treatment research, contemporary tr eatments, and implications for education and training.
