“Apply different psychological perspectives to the treatment of depression”

Does that mean biological psychodynamic social learning theory perspectives? Or perspectives from psychologists

I believe it means the prior so behavioural, cognitive, psychodynamic etc. which really is the perspectives of different psychologists.

I would think based on the question that they are looking for more psychological approaches to the treatment of depression but you could definitely bring in biological as a evaluative point to compare the efficacy of the treatments derived from these psychological approaches, e.g. biological treatments can be used alongside psychological treatments for optimal outcomes.

The question is asking for psychological perspectives, so I would think they are expecting more psychologically-based approaches so that would not include the biological approach. However, you could use the biological approach as an evaluative point if evaluation is required in this question.

They asked for two psychological perspectives and I have to also talk about the treatment. Biological approach treatment relies heavily on drugs like sertraline and I was hoping to explain that type of treatment.

These are what I have to include in the essay:
Describe treatments of depression from different psychological perspectives

Evaluate treatments of depression from different psychological perspectives

Apply different psychological perspectives to the treatment of depression

I must only pick 2 perspectives and and one treatment for each

Ah okay, from this I can see how you would apply the biological approach. There is a lot of literature comparing medication with CBT for depression if that is a possible route you're thinking of going down. A good comparison between medication and talking therapy such as CBT is that studies have found that CBT provides longer-term outcomes of treatment but medications offer quicker relief of depressive symptoms. A combo of the two is possibly the optimal treatment. Good luck!!

I was thinking cognitive perspective for CBT. And biological perspective on medical drugs. Thanks
