Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is used as the most effective intervention for treating individuals who suffer from clinical depression. Research studies consistently support CBT as the primary clinical tool in psychotherapy techniques. However; other psychodynamic techniques are also used to help the individual to better understand their family of origin issues which may serve as a contributing factor to the depressive disorder. Both of these approaches combined with medication therapy increases the likelihood of a successful outcome.
