- The purpose of this article is to identify the level of post-partum depression and to study the effectiveness of Dysfunctional Thought Record (DTR) technique in helping a post-partum depression woman. This is a single case study. The subject was selected using purposive sampling method. Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) are used to measure the depression level. The DTR technique is applied through the six counselling sessions. The result of pre-test and post-test reported that the level of post-partum depression is decreased. The EPDS score is decreased from 20 (pre-test) to 7 (post-test 3) and from possible post-partum depression to normal. The BDI score is reduced from 28 (pre-test) to 6 (post-test 3) and the depression level has improved from moderate to normal.
