Towards sustainable interventions for depression: do psychological interventions make sense?

Depression is a highly prevalent recurrent disorder, although this might hold for most psychopathological conditions. Therefore, it is crucial to develop sustainable interventions. Attention will be paid to the merit of psychological treatment versus antidepressant medication as treatment for depression in terms of endurance of effects after stopping this treatment. In addition, several effective sequential brief psychological relapse prevention strategies will be discussed. Outcomes of recent randomized controlled trials will be presented including self-help interventions, internet-based intervention and face-to-face psychological interventions. Moreover, recent results will be presented that will shed light on the question whether psychological interventions are an alternative for long-term use of antidepressants. Finally, future innovative developments will be discussed.
