Group Treatment of Depression: Individual Predictors of Outcome.
Hoberman, Harry M.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v56 n3 p393-98 Jun 1988
Identified patient characteristics predictive of individual outcome in psychoeducational group treatment for unipolar depression, a coping with depression course. After treatment, 85 percent of the subjects no longer met diagnostic criteria for depressive disorders. Found the most robust predictors of outcome to be pretreatment depression level, social functioning, perceived mastery over events, and early positive perceptions of group cohesiveness. (Author/KS)
