Understanding Depression: The Counsellor’s Guide
This is the Companion to Understanding Anxiety: The Counsellor’s Guide, (2015), Kindle
There are three reasons why this book is needed: to provide teachers and students of counselling with a body of knowledge; to help counsellors understand depression and its variants and to provide the best care for their clients; to enhance counsellors’ professional standing with other mental health professionals by making them aware of the wider issues of mental illness. Counsellors who work in schools, colleges, and universities, GP practices, hospitals, churches, industry, as well as in private practice, often need help in recognising and dealing with clients suffering from depression. The book is written in easily understood language and is a resource for all counsellors. Extracts from the numerous case studies demonstrate therapy, and personal accounts show how sufferers and their relatives cope with this illness.
