Review of a Research Study on Depression in Single Mothers The title used by Peden, A.R, Rayens, M.K., Hall, L.A. and Grant, E. (2005) was appropriate for the study described in the article. The title of the article includes all of the essential elements of the research study conducted. The population of the study, low-income single mothers is included in the study. They also also included their research variables, namely negative thinking, depressive symptoms and chronic stressors in their title (p.268, col1/para1). The study concept, which was to test an intervention, was included in the study; however, the authors excluded the name of the intervention used in the title of the article.
