Abstract

Background & Aims: This research was carried out to compare the effectiveness of cognitive behavior therapy and dialectic behavior therapy and on depression.

Materials & Methods: This study was carried out on 27 participants who were selected according to acquiring 1 score more than standard deviation above the mean in depression inventories and were set into three clusters including cognitive-behavior therapy, dialectic behavior therapy and control. Next, based on an experimental method, pre and post tests with the control cluster, the former and latter clusters were trained in between the one and half an hour of eight sessions while the control group received no therapeutic training. Beck Depression scale and covariance were used to assess and analyze the data.

Results: Albeit both therapeutic clusters did not have significant differences in depression, they have had significant therapeutic differences in successfully intervening against the symptoms compared to the control cluster.

Conclusion: Thus, it could be inferred that the dialectic behavioral therapy and cognitive behavior therapy may be considered a practical therapeutic technique to improve and decrease depression.
