Rumination-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Depression



Negative rumination plays a key role in the onset and maintenance of depression and anxiety–and targeting this persistent mental habit in treatment can lead to better client outcomes and reduced residual symptoms. Rumination-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (RFCBT) for depression combines carefully adapted elements of CBT with imagery, visualization, and compassion-based techniques. Leading clinician-researcher Edward R. Watkins provides everything needed to implement this innovative, empirically supported 12-session approach, including sample dialogues, a chapter-length case example, reflections and learning exercises for therapists, and 10 reproducible client handouts. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials in a convenient 8 1/2″ x 11″ size.
