Transactional Analysis for Depression is the first research-based, transactional analysis psychotherapy manual. Developed from the author's research into TA therapy for depression, the book also draws upon a wide range of contemporary research findings relating to depression and its treatment. Mark Widdowson provides the reader with a solid understanding about the nature of depression and clear guidance about how to provide effective psychotherapy for depressed clients.

The book is a step-by-step guide to therapy, from the point of first contact through to ending, and covers:

* The theory and practice of TA therapy

* Understanding factors which maintain depression

* Conceptualising depression using Transactional Analysis

* Original material on the mechanisms of therapeutic change

* Optimising the psychotherapy process

* Key therapeutic processes in the therapy of depression

* Tailoring the therapy to client needs

* An introduction to neuroscience and the medical treatment of depression

Complete with an additional resources section, including downloadable material designed to be given to clients to enhance the therapeutic process and strengthen the working alliance, Transactional Analysis for Depression provides structured, practical guidance to TA theory for therapists in practice and training.
