Description of this Book

For people with ASDs, depression is common, and has particular features and causes. This outstanding book provides a comprehensive review of these aspects, and an effective self-help guide for anyone with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) affected by depression. Written by the leading experts in the field, the book explains and describes depression, the forms it can take, and how it looks and feels for a person on the autism spectrum. The authors draw on the latest thinking and research to suggest strategies for coping with the effects of depression and provide a complete step-by-step CBT self-help programme, designed specifically for individuals with ASDs. The programme helps increase self-awareness, including identifying personal triggers, and provides the tools to combat depression.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Exploring Depression and Beating the Blues is a much needed resource, in light of how common depression is among teens and adults with autism spectrum disorder. Based in established cognitive-behavioral principles of change, this user-friendly book provides poignant first-person accounts and direct, informative psychoeducation. Although developed as a self-help guide for use with minimal support from a professional, it can also be used in group or individual treatment. I have no doubt this will be a valuable resource to people with ASD struggling with depression, and their loved ones. -- Susan W. White, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Psychology, Virginia Tech, USA
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
