Using the most effective, evidence-based clinical tools, the Depression Guidebook helps you implement 5 distinct strategies for managing depression. These are the most-trusted tools for improving motivation, internal dialogue, and relationships, to help you cope with and manage the symptoms of depression.
Designed in collaboration with experienced clinicians and based in replicated, randomized, controlled scientific evidence, this guidebook features 5 evidence-based tools: Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Behavioral Activation, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Growth Mindset, and Dialectical Therapy.
