Comparative Effectiveness of Psychotherapies for Depressed Elders.
Thompson, Larry W.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n3 p385-90 Jun 1987
Treated 91 elders with a major depressive disorder (MDD) using behavioral, cognitive, or brief psychodynamic psychotherapy. By the end of six weeks patients in all three treatment conditions showed improvement equally, whereas controls did not. Overall, 52 percent of the treatment sample attained remission by termination. The remainder still met criteria for MDD at the conclusion of therapy. (Author/KS)
