This booklet provides information for people who feel depressed or unhappy, or who have emotional problems they cannot sort out on their own. It tells about the psychological help - or talking therapies - that are available for adults on the National Health Service (NHS). It explains what talking therapies are and what they aim to do. The information in this booklet is based on evidence from research studies on psychological therapies. They have been turned into guidelines for GPs on treatment options for people with emotional difficulties or mental health problems. The booklet also includes evidence and quotes from services users; this comes from research by the Mental Health Foundation.

Discusses barriers that can obstruct a structured therapeutic approach. Focuses on dialectical behaviour therapy as a model and discusses how the concept of 'dialectics' can provide an overriding context for case conceptualisation. Illustrates dialectical dilemmas and powerful dynamics that can be enacted between individuals, teams and patients endeavouring to cope with distress. Describes and elaborates the dialectical philosophy, providing a framework for the synthesis of clinical interpersonal encounters and metaphorical concepts of a therapy seesaw. Discusses how these ideas can guide work with emotionally distressed individuals.

Background: There is a need for a generic, short, and easy-to-use assessment measure for common presentations of psychological distress in UK primary care mental health settings. This paper sets out the development of the CORE-10 in response to this need. Method: Items were drawn from the CORE-OM and 10 items were selected according to a combination of usefulness, coverage of item clusters, and statistical procedures. Three CORE-OM datasets were employed in the development phase: (1) a primary care sample, (2) a sample from an MRC platform trial of enhanced collaborative care of depression in primary care, and (3) a general population sample derived from the Office of National Statistics Psychiatric Morbidity Follow-up survey. A fourth dataset comprising a sample from an occupational health setting was used to evaluate the CORE-10 in its standalone format. Results: The internal reliability (alpha) of the CORE-10 was .90 and the score for the CORE-10 correlated with the CORE-OM at .94 in a clinical sample and .92 in a non-clinical sample. The clinical cut-off score for general psychological distress was 11.0 with a reliable change index (90% CI) of 6. For depression, the cut-off score for the CORE-10 was 13 and yielded sensitivity and specificity values of .92 (CI=.83–1.0) and 0.72 (CI=.60–.83) respectively. Conclusion: The CORE-10 is an acceptable and feasible instrument that has good psychometric properties and is practical to use with people presenting with common mental health problems in primary care settings.
