"CBASP, developed by Dr. James P. McCullough Jr., is the only treatment specifically targeted for persistent forms of depression. Its efficacy has now been demonstrated in several clinical trials. This volume clearly and concisely explains how CBASP differs from more traditional forms of cognitive behaviour therapy, and describes its clinical application. This book will be invaluable for all clinicians and trainees who treat patients with persistent depression, and for all mental health professionals who are interested in extensions of the standard CBT model." - Daniel N. Klein, Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, Stony Brook University "James P. McCullough, Jr.'s work is a beacon for clinicians and researchers struggling to understand and treat chronically depressed individuals. This book is a "must read" for mental health professionals working with these often misunderstood and underserved patients." - Todd K. Favorite, Ph.D., Director, University of Michigan Psychological Clinic, Assistant Profe
