Timely and authoritative, this unique volume focuses on neurocognitive aspects of depression and their implications for assessment, evaluation, clinical management, and research. Experts in the field explore the impact of depression on executive function, learning and memory, working memory, and other critical capacities, and present cutting-edge assessment tools and procedures. The neurocognitive effects of widely used antidepressant treatments are reviewed, from psychotropic medications and evidence-based psychotherapies to established and emerging neuromodulation technologies. Practical aspects of working with adults across the lifespan with depression are addressed, including ways to strengthen treatment engagement and adherence, and to incorporate cultural considerations.
