by Timothy Bruce, Arthur Jongsma, Jr.
Learn everything you need to know about creating detailed, practical evidence-based treatment plans for depressed clients in this one-of-a-kind video with Drs. Timothy Bruce and Arthur Jongsma, who present an overview and accompanying demonstrations of depression’s most empirically supported treatment methods.

Part of the 12-video series: Evidence-Based Treatment Planning


Evidence-Based Treatment Planning for Depression
Today’s clinicians are increasingly required to submit clear, standardized treatment plans for clients’ presenting problems—but what these plans actually look like hasn’t been as clearly defined. If you’ve been wondering what, exactly, comprises such a plan or have searched for resources on the empirically supported treatments on which these plans are based, you’ll find answers in this new video with Drs. Timothy Bruce and Arthur Jongsma. Here, the two seasoned clinicians focus on depression as they offer the essential elements of evidence-based treatment planning.

Bruce and Jongsma begin with a clinical review of depression and the features of a major depressive episode (MDE), as outlined in the DSM. Moving at a fast clip, they distinguish between the four major types of mood episodes, expand on the relationship between mood episodes and mood disorders, and offer tools for distinguishing and remembering the criteria of an MDE. You’ll also gain a solid understanding of their six-step treatment planning process, with an emphasis on building a plan informed by the latest empirically supported treatments (ESTs).

Theories, approaches, and interventions abound as the clinicians outline both the “well-established” and “probably efficacious” treatments, describing six of the former in detail. A brief history of the EST movement provides further clinical context.

You’ll find sample treatment plans here, along with expert commentary on the most researched ESTs. Through a series of live demonstrations with a depressed woman named Maria, you’ll watch her therapist bring her to new insights and adaptive behaviors using cognitive restructuring, interpersonal skills training, behavioral activation, and other proven interventions. Definitions, goals, and relapse prevention are covered, too—but as Bruce and Jongsma show, the methods are only effective within the context of an empathic therapeutic relationship.

Look no further than this new video for a comprehensive education that you can immediately use to support client growth, satisfy professional requirements, and build clinical confidence.

Clinicians are overwhelmed these days by an ever-increasing number of psychological approaches and ever-stricter requirements affecting treatment planning. Knowing which of the many approaches qualify as evidence-based, or how to translate their interventions into a coherent, phase-oriented plan, can be challenging. The prevalence of depression as a clinical diagnosis, furthermore, makes standardized treatment planning a necessity for many mental health professionals, yet resources for learning to do so are hard to come by. We’re excited to offer this new, in-depth video, in which two clinical experts break down and demonstrate the crucial components of an evidence-based treatment plan for depression.

After giving an overview of the DSM criteria for depression and the history of the empirically supported treatment (EST) movement, Bruce and Jongsma outline the criteria for both “well-established” and “probably efficacious” treatments, going on to describe six of the former methods in detail. With a rundown of these approaches that includes review, demonstration, and commentary, you’ll learn how to compose a six-step treatment plan based on the interventions of behavioral activation, cognitive restructuring, personal and interpersonal skills training and problem-solving therapy, and interpersonal therapy. You’ll also learn about other common approaches to treatment, as well as relapse prevention.

If you’re looking to deepen your understanding of evidence-based treatment planning and the empirically supported treatments on which they’re based, be sure to add this information-packed video to your library.

By watching this video, you will:
  • Refresh your knowledge of the DSM criteria for depression and the features of a major depressive episode.
  • Learn to create a six-step treatment plan based on well-established evidence-based empirically supported treatments.
  • Understand the common considerations in depression relapse prevention and how to address them with your clients.
