Efficacy of Psychosocial Treatments for Geriatric Depression: A Quantitative Review.
Scogin, Forrest; McElreath, Lisa
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v62 n1 p69-74 Feb 1994
Conducted meta-analysis of 17 studies examining efficacy of psychosocial treatments for depression among older adults. Treatments were reliably more effective than no-treatment on self-rated and clinician-rated measures of depression. Effect sizes for studies involving participants with major depression disorder were reliably different from zero, as were effect sizes from studies involving participants with less severe levels of depression.
