The aim of this pilot study is to test the effectiveness of a telephone-based and in-person Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) intervention for treating Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) following Traumatic Brain Injury
Location: University of Washington
Latest Activity: Jul 4, 2012
After a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), many people experience symptoms including low mood, poor energy, loss of interest in usual activities, and changes in appetite and sleep. LIFT uses a particular approach to education and counseling, called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This type of counseling has been used to effectively treat these symptoms with people who have not had a brain injury. LIFT is investigating whether these same strategies can also help people who have had a TBI. Researchers hope to find out if counseling can help people with a TBI get back to activities they enjoy, develop positive mental habits, and improve overall quality of life. Eligible participants will be enrolled in the study for 16 weeks, with a follow-up phone call 8 weeks later. Participants may receive 12 sessions of in-person CBT at Harborview or UW Medical Center or 12 sessions of telephone CBT. A third group of participants will not receive counseling from the study. Participants will be paid up to $100 for their time and participation.
