  5. Conclusion

Anti-depressant medications have been considered as the best outpatient treatment for most depressive disorders, despite the fact that reviews and evidence suggesting otherwise that evidence-based psychotherapies are just as effective as pharmacotherapy when it comes to treating major depressive disorders. This study makes the case for the efficiency of CT and REBT for outpatient therapy.

It specifically shows that cognitive therapy is more effective than pharmacotherapy, for outpatient therapy, regardless of how severe a patient's depression is. It also finds that REBT is not only efficient and useful in a wide range of outpatient clinical outcomes and clinical diagnosis, but, it is also efficient for non-clinical as well as clinical therapy, for both males and females. It thus, persuades policy makers to adopt and enforce the use of evidence-based psychotherapies such as CT and REBT as primary approaches to outpatient treatment of major depressive disorder.
