Severe Depression Thought Study
Sixty patients were included in a study on depression in the journal Behavior Research and Therapy. The patients in the study all were suffering from major depression and were being treated at one of two universities.

The indication from the study is that when cognitive therapists have patients focus on changing their thoughts rather than focusing on changing behaviors, more improvement was noted by the patients.

Each patient completed a questionnaire at the end of each session that identified how the patient felt at the end of the treatment.

The study focused on evaluating the techniques used by the therapists and the scores marked by the individuals in the study related to their levels of depression. The more committed individuals were to treatment, the more the individuals benefitted from the therapy.
