Several case examples are included to help the patient understand what the CBASP techniques are, how they work, and what to expect from treatment in terms of outcome goals. Written in a hopeful, empathic tone, the manual provides needed support to chronically depressed individuals as they begin the challenging work of CBASP psychotherapy.
