Scoring
Scoring for all except questions 4, 8, 12, and 16:
￿ 0 points: Rarely or none of the time ( , 1day)
￿ 1 point: Some or a little of the time (1 2 days)
￿ 2 points: Occasionally or a moderate amount of the time (3 4 days)
￿ 3 points: Most or all of the time (5 7 days).
For questions 4, 8, 12, and 16, the scoring is exactly the same except
that it is reversed: “Most or all of the time” is scored 0 points, “Rarely or
none of the time” is scored 3 points, etc. Roughly speaking, the higher
the score, the greater the depressive symptoms.
What a score means
￿ Less than 15: Fairly normal range of emotion.
￿ 5 21: Mild to moderate depression. Further exploration of the rea-
sons for the depression are explored and the potential for an increase
in depressed feelings are evaluated. With this should come an evalua-
tion of medical, social and psychological reasons for the depression
and the potential
for an evidence-based practice modality offering
relief.
