Intensive cognitive-behaviour therapy for depression : preliminary findings with four country residents
Schlosser, David, Kavanagh, David J., & Wilson, Peter (1988) Intensive cognitive-behaviour therapy for depression : preliminary findings with four country residents. Behaviour Change, 5, pp. 28-31.
Describes a brief intensive program of cognitive therapy for depression that was designed for 4 adult residents of country towns in Australia, who resided some distance from treatment centers. Ss were assessed prior to treatment, at posttreatment, and at 4-wk, 8-wk, and 20-mo follow-ups. Treatments took place over 3 consecutive days for a total period of 15 hrs. Effects were highly consistent with the impact of group treatments delivered on a more traditional schedule. If confirmed in a controlled group study, these results suggest that cognitive therapy may be applied more economically and more widely than was previously realized.
