This book focuses on persons with severe depression and formulates empathic, humanistic and effective interventions in dealing with severe depression. The NICHE approach described in this book is a prolonged and accumulative crystallization of innovative ideas, successful interventions, genuine sharing and courageous trials in the process of clinical training and supervision.
