The psychotherapy used in the study, Cognitive Behavioral Analysis System of Psychotherapy, or CBASP, is the first psychotherapy developed specifically to treat chronic depression.
Few therapists are trained in CBASP, however, and Arnow hopes the results of this study will spur efforts to provide psychotherapists with more opportunities to learn it, making it more widely available.
However, Arnow noted, the results of the current study cannot be generalized to other antidepressants used in combination with psychotherapy or forms of psychotherapy other than CBASP until they have been tested in clinical trials and shown similar response rates.
