Abstract

This article provides information about how problem-solving therapy can reduce depressive symptoms in terms of reducing depression when combined with other interventions that have the same purpose of decreasing depressive symptoms. This article analyzes how each intervention, combined with problem-solving therapy (PST), can affect depressive symptoms in individuals. Besides, it gives information on the combination of interventions that are most recommended for reducing depressive symptoms. The review of several PST studies on other interventions showed significant success in lowering depressive symptoms. However, some other interventions combined with PST did not show a significant change in the subject after getting treatment. PST is effective in reducing the level of depression in adults, can reduce anxiety in individuals with depression, can be effective in helping to lose weight when combined with pharmacology, and reduce suicidal ideation in depressed individuals.
