Evaluation of a multimodal structured group approach in treatment of depression

Psychological Reports 56(3): 984-986
Evaluation of a multimodal structured group approach in treatment of depression
The effects of a multimodal structured group approach for 8 clients with histories of recurrent or chronic depression were investigated. The Beck Depression Inventory, a measure of depression, was administered immediately prior to the 1st session and immediately afterwards. Scores were significantly lower immediately following the group. At a 6-mo. follow-up clients were again given the Beck scale and were also given the Depression Adjective Check List. The Beck scale scores remained significantly lower than at the beginning of the group; and the Depression Adjective Check List scores were within the normal, nondepressed range. A small n and lack of controls limit interpretation.
