Depression, now recognized as a significant source of disability across the globe, is something many of us will be familiar with. This book explores the way people have discussed depression and examines how scientific understanding has led to ways to better appreciate and treat the condition.

Through evaluations of contemporary research and literature, this book examines how depression has been depicted throughout history and presents an up-to-date account of how a diagnosis is made. Offering a narrative steeped in cognitive neuropsychology and emotion regulation, chapters explore the different theories behind current explanations of why depression develops and how this understanding drives the different ways to treat and manage the condition. It presents a holistic approach that considers depression in the context of physical health and how it impacts across the lifespan.

This book is an essential read for practicing and trainee clinical psychologists, but its accessible and readable style will appeal to a broader audience of those looking to further understand depression.
