The Treatments That Work[Trademark] series offers you the tools you need to help your clients overcome a range of problems, including anxiety, panic, phobias, eating disorders, addictions, and PTSD, and emotional and behavioral aspects of many medical problems as well. Whatever the condition or diagnosis, we have a program for you. The treatment in this guide is for people suffering from depression and living with chronic illness. As a result of their poor health, many individuals who are chronically ill become depressed and fail to maintain steady self-care routines. Using this guide, therapists can help clients with chronic illnesses to develop core skills and techniques that will enable them to take better care of themselves. The program incorporates a unique Life-Steps module that teaches clients strategies for keeping up with their medical regimens, including tips for remembering to take medications, getting to medical appointments on time, and communicating effectively with medical providers.Safren, Steven is the author of 'Cbt for Depression and Adherence in Individuals With Chronic Illness Therapist Guide', published 2007 under ISBN 9780195315165 and ISBN 0195315162.
