On October 1, 2010, The American Psychiatric Association announced new guidelines for the treatment of depression, the first update in a decade. Many of the changes include psychological and behavioral treatments. Of note was the new recommendation that medical providers and therapists utilize psychological tests and rating scales to measure symptom severity and response to treatment. They also highlighted the need to tailor depression treatment to the individual needs of clients. The APA also recognized the importance of including exercise as an important component of depression treatment. Psychologists, who have training in health psychology and behavior change, are uniquely situated to aid clients in many of these areas. CPA has therapists and counselors in Boston and Newton who provide depression treatment and employ psychological testing as part of treatment.
