Abstract

Patients with chronic depression (CD) by definition respond less well to standard forms of psychotherapy and are more likely to be high utilisers of psychiatric resources. The aim of this guidance paper is to provide a comprehensive overview of current psychotherapy for CD. The evidence of efficacy is critically reviewed and recommendations for clinical applications and research are given.
