Personality-Guided Therapy For Depression by Neil R. Rockian (Professor of Psychology, Adler School of Professional Psychology, Chicago, Illinois) presents a new approach to treating patients with complicated depression for whom progress has been slow, elusive, or followed by relapse. Professor Rockian notes, for example, that depression experienced by a person with a dependent style will differ markedly from depression experienced by someone with an antisocial personality. Drawing from major theoretical orientations to demonstrate how psychotherapy can be tailored to patients diverse needs and distinctive communication styles, Personality-Guide Therapy offers an approach that will provide new hope for successfully tailoring the therapy to the patient's personality type while controlling for how prevalent the depression is; psychological, biological, and social factors; the role of medications; and therapist reactions to the patient. A work of seminal, definitive scholarship, Personality-Guided Therapy For Depression is a welcome and core contribution to academic library and professional reference collections.
