This updated and revised Second Edition provides a state-of-the-science review and clinical collection of research on treating depression with multiple therapies. The text is an essential guide for those who prescribe psychotropics or perform psychotherapy, including psychiatrists, residents, psychologists, and psychopharmacologists. Containing research data, case studies, and expert recommendations, this source explores the best acute, long-term, and combination treatment strategies for superior patient care.

New to the Second Edition:

  • a chapter devoted to a simultaneous discussion on psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy
  • chapters on depression and anxiety, depression and pain, and new treatment options
  • information on the advancements of genetics, imaging, and brain stimulation with regard to depressive disorders and implications for future use
  • the latest research on drug development and combining drug treatments


"…A nice balance between a review of what the evidence shows and practical advice and suggestions based on that review. It also focuses on difficult to treat cases, situations where combining medications or trying newer somatic therapies might be in order…a very digestible review of what is considered state-of-the-art in the management of major depression."—Doody’s Reviews (for the First Edition)
