Self-Management of Depression : A Manual for Mental Health and Primary Care Professionals, Paperback / softback Book

Self-Management of Depression : A Manual for Mental Health and Primary Care Professionals Paperback / softback


With growing access to health information, people who suffer from depression are increasingly eager to play an active role in the management of their symptoms.

The goal of self-management is to support patients in monitoring and managing their symptoms and provide them with additional resources to promote recovery, enhance quality of life, and prevent relapse.

For clinicians, self-management holds promise for improving practice efficiency and efficacy by helping patients maximize their improvement outside of treatment sessions.

Self-Management of Depression is written for clinicians who wish to empower their patients to take more active steps to manage depression.

Chapters cover care management, self-assessment, exercise, self-help books and computer programs, meditation, and peer-support groups and strategies for how to incorporate self-management into a treatment plan are described.

Reproducible handouts to support patients are also available online.

This book is relevant to clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, social workers and primary care physicians.
