This volume describes the Cognitive Behavioral Analysis System of Psychotherapy (CBASP), a research-based approach designed to motivate chronically depressed patients to change and to help them develop needed problem-solving and relationship skills. Presenting clear, step-by-step guidelines for implementing CBASP-along with compelling empirical evidence that supports its efficacy-the book is filled with illustrative case material that brings challenging clinical situations to life. Also covered are ways to measure treatment outcomes and recommended procedures for training and supervision.

"[This] book will become more than compulsory reading: it will become a keystone for advanced training in the psychotherapy of patients with chronic depression....For the researcher, McCullough demonstrates a clinically significant therapy approach for chronic depression that begs consideration of certification in this method....I recommend the book very strongly for the treatment of chronically depressed patients by therapists who have been in practice for 24 months to 24 years."-Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
"The book is exciting because it presents a stimulating integrative theory of psychopathology and therapy and because it describes a complex and multifaceted treatment that has been shown to be effective in a large clinical trial....It is likely to be widely read by advanced graduate students, clinicians, and researchers interested in cognitive-behavioral and eclectic treatment. It should also be of great interest to dynamic therapists trying to help treatment-resistant patients."-Contemporary Psychology
