Prediction of outcome with group cognitive therapy for depression
Kavanagh, David J. & Wilson, Peter (1989) Prediction of outcome with group cognitive therapy for depression. Behaviour Research and Therapy, 27(4), pp. 333-343.
Tested a social–cognitive model of depressive episodes and their treatment within a predictive study of treatment response. 42 clinically depressed volunteers (aged 22–60 yrs) were given self-efficacy (SE) questionnaires and other measures before and after treatment with cognitive therapy. Results support the idea that SE and skills regarding control of negative cognition mediates a sustained response to cognitive treatment for depression. Not only did mood-control variables correlate highly with concurrent changes in depression scores during treatment, but the posttreatment SE measure discriminated Ss who relapsed over the next 12 mo.
