Exercise treatment for depression: Efficacy and dose response. American Journal of Preventive Medicine, 28 (1), 1-8. doi: Essay Outline: Introduction: - Exercise has shown promise in alleviating symptoms of clinical depression. - Many studies have examined the efficacy of exercise to reduce symptoms of depression, and majority of these studies have described a positive association between exercise involvement and depression. - Benefits of exercise involvement may be long lasting. - Most depressed patients first seek treatment from their primary care providers (e.g, doctor). - Generally, depressed patients treated in primary care settings receive pharmacological therapy alone. There is evidence to suggest that the addition of cognitive-behavioral therapies, specifically exercise, can improve treatment outcomes for many patients (Craft, 2004). - Can complement pharmacological treatment and provide relief from this treatment- resistant disorder as well as enhance physical well-being (Craft, 2004). - As evidence continues to pile up, the exercise-mental health connection is becoming impossible to ignore. - Exercise has been proposed as an alternative treatment that potentially could reduce depression and anxiety through biochemical, physiological, psychological and psychosocial mechanisms and pathways.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
