The main aim of the project is to develop couple therapy for depression with special interest in dialogical and narrative processes in therapy. Parenthood, and different psychosocial phenomena, such as domestic violence, suicidal behaviour and alcohol abuse in relation to the client's specific depressive state will be analysed. The second main aim of the study is to analyse the effectiveness couple therapy for depression as a real world study. The good and poor outcome of different therapy processes will be compared and thus information about precise change processes will be reached. Owing to the real world setting, the inclusion criterion is a broad one: a primary diagnosis of depression (F32 and F33 in ICD-10).
The project will be conducted as a multicentre study so that in each centre the included patients will be randomized into experiment and control groups. The study centres are (1) Pohjois-Savon sairaanhoitopiiri in Kuopio, (2) Länsi-Pohjan sairaanhoitopiiri in Tornio and Kemi and (3) HUS/ Jorvin sairaala regional psychiatric polyclinics in Espoo. In each province the entire adult population has free access to the psychiatric outpatient clinics in their specific catchment area and thus no selection for the patients is done.
