Abstract

© 2013 Colegio Oficial de Psicólogos de Madrid. Production by Elsevier Espana, S.L.U. All rights reserved.The goal of the present study was to assess depressive symptoms, problem-solving skills, and their role in therapeutic change in an indicated prevention of depression intervention aimed at non-professional female caregivers. We performed a randomized controlled trial in which participants were randomized to a problem-solving intervention (n = 89) or a usual care control group (n = 84). There was a significant pre- to post-treatment improvement in problem-solving skills in the intervention group, t(88) = -10.44, p <.001. We also observed significant associations between depressive symptomatology and positive (r = -.22, p =.043) and negative (r =.21, p =.045) problem orientation, as well as the generation of alternative solutions (r = -.22, p =.040). The changes in global and functional problem-solving skills were moderators of the post-treatment decrease in depressive symptomatology.
