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.
Providing a new understanding of the interpersonal aspects of depression, as well as ways in which this understanding can be put to work in therapy, DEPRESSION IN MARRIAGE will be of interest to a wide range of professionals working with depressed individuals or distressed couples. It can also be used as a text for graduate level courses in psychology, marriage and family therapy, and social work.
