The purpose of this randomized, controlled trial was to test the efficacy of a community-based intervention, the Life Story Workshop, on depressive symptoms, operationalized as depression subscale scores on the Brief Symptom Inventory 18, in adults age 60 and older. Thirty-three men and women were randomly assigned to one of two groups: an intervention group that attended 2-hour workshops once a week for 10 weeks or a wait-list control group. The intervention provided an opportunity for older participants to reflect on, write, and share stories about their lived and current lives. The depression subscale of the Brief Symptom Inventory 18 was administered before and after the workshops. Mean depression scores were compared using Welch’s t test. A significant improvement was measured for the intervention group compared with the control group (p = .03). This research supports the Life Story Workshop as an effective intervention for improving depressive symptoms in older adults.
