All practicing marital therapists and clinicians working with a depressed population see patients in whom depression and a dysfunctional relationship exist concurrently. Due to the unique problems they present, and the therapy process issues involved in seeing treatment through to successful completion, these cases are usually considered difficult. The first book to bring the relevant research literature to bear on this thorny clinical problem, DEPRESSION IN MARRIAGE views the marital relationship as a powerful point of therapeutic intervention for depression and offers step-by-step guidance to clinically flexible treatment.
By utilizing a marital discord model of depression, therapists can tap the power of the marital relationship to promote growth and healing rather than work against the powerful forces of the marital dyad. Offering precise guidelines for assessment, intervention, and management, DEPRESSION IN MARRIAGE provides useful clinical measurement tools and uses case vignettes to illustrate practical issues. Interventions are described in detail, with references to the relevant research literature. Whether marital therapy is the primary treatment modality, or an adjunct to individual or somatic interventions, DEPRESSION IN MARRIAGE will help identify useful, practical intervention strategies.
Providing a new understanding of the interpersonal aspects of depression, as well as ways in which this understanding can be put to work in therapy, DEPRESSION IN MARRIAGE will be of interest to a wide range of professionals working with depressed individuals or distressed couples. It can also be used as a text for graduate level courses in psychology, marriage and family therapy, and social work.

"This volume is an important contribution to clinical psychology. Few books manage to achieve the sophisticated integration of basic research issues and applied concerns found in this monograph. Beach and his colleagues have developed a systematic approach to the treatment of co-occurring depression and marital discord that exemplifies the scientist-practitioner ideal at its best. DEPRESSION IN MARRIAGE is essential reading for anyone interested in marital dysfunction and will appeal to researchers and therapists alike." --Frank Fincham, Ph.D.
