Recent studies have provided additional support for the efficacy
of a number of psychosocial treatment approaches, including problem-solving
treatment (65, 66), group psychoeducation (65), and the cognitive
behavioral analysis system of psychotherapy (67). Additional meta-analyses
have suggested that among psychotherapeutic approaches, other bona
fide psychotherapies have efficacy comparable with CBT for treating
depression (68, 69), although more research with CBT has been done.
Given the evidence for the benefits of exercise in older depressed
adults (70, 71), exercise may also be of value in other subgroups
of patients with major depression.
