Problem-Solving Therapy (PST) is an evidenced-based intervention for treating both adult and late-life depression. Based on research identifying ineffective problem-solving ability to be an important vulnerability factor for depression, PST fosters adoption and implementation of adaptive problem-solving attitudes and behaviors as a means of effectively coping with stressful life events. A stepped-care approach to treatment will be described whereby treatment decisions are guided by the severity of a client’s depression levels and/or problem-solving deficits. The underlying conceptual framework informing this treatment modality, as well as its empirical foundations, will be presented. In addition, clinical guidelines for conducting PST will be described in detail.
