Depression is a debilitating and sometimes fatal mental illness. It is very common among spouses/partners of addicts and adult children raised in addicted families, and is often a co-occurring or subsequent disorder in the addicted client.This is not a how-to-treat depression book. It is meant for clinicians versed in identifying and treating depression within the context of treating addiction.What sets this book apart from other depression workbooks is that it holds a healthy respect for cognitive behavioral modalities while recognizing the role of affective and spiritual interventions related to depressive disorders. In this revised edition, Dr. Black provides didactic information and reproducible handouts. In many of the strategies sections, she presents ideas and formats 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.
