Depression Treatment Specialty Clinic

The Depression Treatment Specialty Clinic primarily conducts research aimed at improving psychotherapy for depressive disorders through explorations of the psychotherapy process and investigations of the efficacy of specific treatments for depression. The clinic offers comprehensive psychological evaluations to determine the presence of depression and other psychological or behavioral problems followed by scientifically-based, nonpharmacological treatment for depression.

The specific treatment for depression received depends on the nature of the client's problems but may include cognitive modification, behavioral activation, grieving losses, increasing emotional expression, developing mindfulness, developing relationship skills, or changing the environmental factors that trigger and maintain depression.
