From the Paper:

"Two different major findings resulted from this study. "When the depression scale of the MMPI was used as a pre and post-treatment measure," Fazio reports, "only Group B had a significantly lowered post-treatment depression than did both Group A or Group C. However, when the BDI was used to measure pre and post-treatment depression, both Groups A and B had a significantly lowered post depression than did Group C" (p. 50). The results of the study therefore partially supported the hypothesis."
