In an article recently published in Behavior Research and Therapy (Braun, StrunkSasso, & Cooper, 2015), the authors suggest that the more therapists used Socratic questioning with their patients, the more relief patients felt from their depressive symptoms. 

Therapists using the Socratic approach ask a series of guided questions to help their patients reconsider negative thoughts.
