Counselling for Depression (Therapy in Practice)

Counselling for Depression (Therapy in Practice)

by Paul Gilbert (Author)


Highly acclaimed in its First Edition for its practical and sensitive approach, Counselling for Depression is an insightful guide to depression and the essential interpersonal skills and techniques which can be used in counselling the depressed person. Taking account of new developments in the field, the Second Edition has been fully updated and features an additional chapter on interventions. Paul Gilbert examines the inherent features - a sense of failure, abandonment, powerlessness, shame and guilt - and highlights the fragility and negativity of the depressive state. Using illustrations and case examples, he traces the steps appropriate at different stages in the counselling process and shows how the counsellor can help clients to change and to cope independently, by managing the whole method of change for themselves.
