Abstract

Literature evidences that light therapy is found to be an effective intervention to depressive patients. This was tested through an experimental approach with single subject experimental design. Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression was administered to assess the level of depression. Purposive sample of single depressive patient was selected for the study. Light therapy was administered for 30 minutes a day for seven consecutive days. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the data. The result reveals that light therapy significantly reduced the level of depression. Hence, the light therapy can be used as a complementary therapy to patients with depression.
