Depression is a debilitating and sometimes, life-costing illness. It is very common among spouses/partners of addicts and adult children raised in addicted families. Depression is often a co-occurring or subsequent disorder in the addicted client. What sets this book apart from other depression workbooks is that it holds a healthy respect for cognitive behavioral modalities as well as recognizing the role of affective and spiritual interventions related to depressive disorders. This is not a how-to-treat depression book. It is meant for use by the clinician versed in identifying and treating depression.
This workbook contains didactic information, reproducible handouts and the Imageries audio CD. In many of the strategies sections, ideas and formats are presented for structured interventions. The use of handouts in the form of written exercises, checklists, sentence stems, structured dialogues and/or art activities is an integral part of this therapeutic technique.
