"Firmly based on research results, Mark Widdowson's book offers health professionals a clearly structured, step-by-step procedure for the effective treatment of depression. It provides a valuable practical resource for all therapists and counsellors working in this field." - Ian Stewart, Co-Director, The Berne Institute, Nottingham

"Widdowson... offers an elegant presentation of Berne's development of TA theory... As I read Transactional Analysis for Depression I found myself thinking what good revision it offered for much of the TA I Have learnt and that I have forgotten... [The] skill of this book is that all of those nuggests of information, all of those pieces of TA theory you may have forgotten that you know, are all presented within a coherent and sequential framework designed to help the client with depression...I do enjoy an author who both challenges my thinking and suggests new areas for my curiousity. Widdowson does just this many times... The author manages to capture much of what may not be obviously considered... The book is littered with practical therapeutic nuggets... [There] is much in this step-by-step guide, and as the author suggests, it is for the reader to be flexible and creative with the material offered... I have found this book a really helpful and structured way of bringing TA theory to working with depression. Widdowson has taken many of the familiar and comprehensive range of TA theories and models and laid them out in an approach that is structured and accessible, in order to illustrate how to work with depression." - John Paradise, Transactional Analysis psychotherapist, UK, The Transactional Analyst
