From a leading clinician-researcher, this book presents an empirically tested approach for helping clients with severe and chronic depression by directly tackling negative rumination. Rumination-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (RFCBT) combines carefully adapted elements of CBT with imagery, visualization, and compassion-based techniques. The book provides everything needed to implement this 12-session approach, including numerous sample dialogues, a chapter-length case example, reflections and learning exercises for therapists, and 10 reproducible client handouts. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

"Written by an internationally recognized expert, this book provides a highly accessible and engaging review of the phenomenology, etiology, assessment, and treatment of rumination. Practical, evidence-based treatment strategies are supplemented with rich clinical transcripts that illustrate the moment-by-moment intricacies of intervention. The techniques in this manual empower patients to go beyond the content of their thoughts to address the process and form of rumination. Clinicians at every level of expertise will benefit from this excellent volume."--David J. A. Dozois, PhD, Professor and Director, Clinical Psychology Graduate Program, University of Western Ontario, Canada
