Summary And Conclusions

Depression is a multifaceted phenomenon, with a variety of psychological and motor components. However, in the measurement of depression, clinicians and researchers tend to use a narrow range of scales and questionnaires that relate only to psychological aspects, especially mood. The HDRS and the BDI are by far the most popular psychometric instruments for measuring depression, and there are no signs that they are about to be supplanted, despite their being subject to much criticism. An unfortunate consequence of the narrow focus on affective aspects is that other aspects, such as speech patterns and motor abnormalities, have been largely neglected as measures of depression in research studies. A more comprehensive assessment of the full range of depressive phenomena by a wide range of measurement techniques would be helpful in casting further light on this complex clinical condition.
