Response

The first goal of psychotherapy is to get you to feel better.

Response is reached when, as a patient, you report less depressive symptoms, clinically meaningful improvement in mood, daily functioning, physical pain, and negative thinking. Getting to a response level will be easy for some. Generally, these adults and children report feeling better in a few sessions. 

When it comes to attaining a response in psychotherapy, don't compare yourself with another person's experience. Instead, focus on your unique experiences with depression and set realistic goals with your therapist.
