The depressed patients to be treated with the guidance of this manual should be selected by assessments that verify that they fit the DSM-IV (APA, 1994) diagnoses of major depression or chronic depression or both. We will therefore use the main points of the DSM-IV criteria for these two diagnostic groups because they are the basis for selecting the appropriate patients and because the treatment techniques described in this manual were developed to help therapists deal with these patients’ characteristics. The DSM-IV diagnostic criteria for major depression include a dysphoric mood or loss of interest or pleasure in the usual activities.
