Scogin, Forrest; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v58 n5 p665-67 Oct 1990
Examined long-term benefits of bibliotherapy program for depressed older adults. Thirty of original 44 participants were assessed 2 years after treatment for depression. Found no significant increases in clinician- or self-rated depression. Most participants had not received other treatment, most felt their depression level had decreased, and over one-half had read at least parts of their assigned book. (Author/NB)
