Summary
"Describes a promising new approach to treating individuals with complicated depression for whom progress is painfully slow, elusive, or followed by relapse. The causes and experience of depression are influenced by personality style: Depression experienced by a person with a dependent style, for example, differs markedly from that experienced by someone with an antisocial personality. This volume, drawing insights from major theoretical orientations, demonstrates how psychotherapy can be tailored to patients' varying needs and communication styles. Because treating personality disorders alleviates depression and vice versa, this approach offers new hope for progress in both realms. Using Theodore Millon's personality-guided psychology as a framework, author Neil R. Bockian illuminates how taking personality into account enables psychologists to tailor their interventions and thus improve the prospects for long-term recovery. For each personality type, the author explores how prevalent depression is; what promotes and maintains it; how psychological, biological, and social factors contribute to it; and the role of medications and of therapist reactions to the patient. This groundbreaking book offers practitioners, researchers, and students a framework for understanding how personality factors increase vulnerability to depression or help buffer against it"--Jacket.
