Therapists who offer behavioral marital therapy usually help spouses change harmful marital behavior by teaching them specific communication and problem-solving skills. Treatment for Depression! The sociocultural depression treatments usually include interpersonal psychotherapy and couples therapy. Interpersonal psychotherapy was developed during the 1980’s by the clinical researchers Gerald Klerman and Myrna Weissman, which held that four interpersonal problem areas may lead to depression and must be addressed: interpersonal loss, interpersonal role dispute, interpersonal role transition and interpersonal deficits. Some research has found that interpersonal depression treatments may have similar success rates to those of cognitive therapy. Bibliography! http://www.unm.edu/~devalenz/handouts/sociocult.html
