This volume comprehensively compares and contrasts alternative models of, and treatment approaches to, clinical depression. Each contributor, a recognized expert in his or her modality, analyzes the same case and provides:
- an overview of the treatment model
- empirical evidence for both the model and treatment derived from it
- treatment strategies and interventions, including termination issues, relapse prevention, and recommendations for follow-up care
Among the 12 approaches presented are Object Relations, Cognitive Therapies, Schema-Focused, Couple and Family, Integrative Psychotherapy, and Psychopharmacology. A significant contribution to this volume is the chapter on cultural considerations for understanding, assessing, and treating depression.

Dr. Davison's philosophy and approach to working with individuals can be described as collaborative and solution focused. He specializes in helping individuals identify and overcome limitations in their thinking, and has a knack of helping individuals find rapid solutions to long-standing challenges. As many of the newer schools of psychotherapy acknowledge, there is a strong connection between an individual's thinking, feeling and behavior. Therefore creating slight shifts in any of these areas can start the ball rolling to create profound change.
