Depression in Marriage: A Model for Etiology and Treatment

Front Cover
Guilford Press, 1990 M04 20 - 242 pages
By utilizing a marital discord model of depression, therapists can tap the power of the marital relationship to promote growth and healing rather than work against the powerful forces of the marital dyad. Offering precise guidelines for assessment, intervention, and management, Depression In Marriage provides useful clinical measurement tools and uses case vignettes to illustrate practical issues. Interventions are described in detail, with references to the relevant research literature. Whether marital therapy is the primary treatment modality, or an adjunct to individual or somatic interventions, Depression In Marriage will help identify useful, practical intervention strategies.
