Reviews

“This guide presents the most up-to-date, cutting-edge pharmacological, non-pharmacological, somatic treatments and psychotherapeutic interventions for patients struggling with difficult-to-treat depression. … The strength of this book lies in the chapters describing more novel treatments, which even the most seasoned psychiatrists are not necessarily familiar with. This book will be of great use to clinicians at all levels of experience.” (Michael Easton, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2019)
