Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the “well-being therapy" method on clinical syndrome in patients with major depression as a randomized clinical trial.
Methods: This randomized clinical trial study was performed on patients with major depression who referred to the psychological clinic of Shamim, Bojnurd city. Participants eligible to enter the study were randomly assigned to the intervention and control groups. In the intervention group Well-being therapy was performed in 8 sessions of 50 minutes and once a week, and the control group did not receive any treatment .Both groups were evaluated before and after the study and two months later by the Second Depression Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II). Data were analyzed by generalized estimation equation (GEE) in STATA12 statistical program and p-value <0.05 was considered statistically significant.
Results: A total of 24 subjects had inclusion criteria in which 12 participants were randomly assigned to each group. The frequency of women in the intervention and control group was 67.0% and 72.0%, respectively. The results of the GEE test showed that in the well-being group, the mean depression scores decreased 10.90 rather than the control group (p-value <0.0001).
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that the well-being of patients with major depression reduces their depression.
