Symptom Reports from Beck Depression Inventory

Purpose: To understand what symptoms of depression the patient is experiencing so that the therapist can choose appropriate targets for intervention.


Method: Therapist looks over the patient’s BDI at the beginning of the session and focuses primarily on strong behavioral and mood symptoms if they are present.
Example:

The therapist reviews the patient’s BDI and says, “I notice that you circled the statement ‘I have a hard time making decisions.’ Can you tell me what that is like for you?”

The therapist would then help the patient process some recent decision making incident that was difficult and use this information at some later point, perhaps to work on problems solving skills.
