Basic knowledge: Dealing with patients with depression

Recommended for translation.

Skilfully and motivationally working together with clients suffering from depression without losing sight of ones own welfare as a therapist.Target audience:Psychotherapists, psychologists, doctors, social workers and social support, alternative psychotherapists, inpatient, and outpatient carers. 

Patients with depression are a real challenge for therapists. They encounter people with a deep resignation and listlessness, people who mostly can no longer gain any pleasure from life. Therefore the central question of the treatment is: How can an authentic and convincing hope of improvement be imparted on the patients? With the use of numerous examples from her therapeutic experience Angela Mahnkopf shows how a motivational interaction with patients with depression can succeed. In doing so she bears in mind the emotional situation of the helpers and encourages them to never lose faith.
The compact Basic Knowledge about depression is associated with an ethical attitude and a precise behavioural pattern when dealing with patients with depression.

First published in 2007, 2nd print-run, 2009.

Angela Mahnkopf, born 1951, PhD, graduate psychologist, is a psychological psychotherapist. Numerous publications, in particular co-author of »Lehrbuch Psychiatrie für Studium und Beruf«.

Original title:
»Basiswissen: Umgang mit depressiven Patienten«

The book series »Basic Knowledge« imparts the essential basics of the chosen subject area not only for newcomers but also for experienced therapists and carers working in psychiatry. It is also important to develop a sympathetic attitude towards people with mental disorders. In addition, the books in this series always have the welfare of the people tending the patient in mind to help enhance the satisfaction of their occupation.
The booklets mostly have 144 pages with helpful information on the inside cover. Because of their highly visible recognition factor and the closeness and competence with which they deal with each subject, the series, which now runs to 12 volumes, has achieved the status of a »home library« in German speaking countries.
