Telephone Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for HIV Related Depression
Connect: A Pilot Study of Telephone Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for HIV Related Depression
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a telephone-based, cognitive behavioral therapy intervention in the treatment of depression in adults diagnosed with HIV.
Up to 40% of individuals receiving medical care for HIV meet DSM-IV criteria for co-occurring depressive disorder. Individuals with HIV and depressive disorders, compared to those with HIV alone, have been shown to have worse adherence to taking antiretroviral medication, increased HIV related morbidity and among women a higher mortality. Previous research suggests that mental health interventions may lead to improved depressive and HIV related outcomes. However because many HIV infected depressed individuals may have trouble accessing mental health services, there is an urgent need for treatment trials to assess whether treatment of depression targeting patients in urban HIV care settings will result in both improved depressive and HIV related outcomes. The goal of this project is to test the preliminary effectiveness of an adapted telephone-based, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) intervention targeting HIV infected depressed individuals receiving care in adult outpatient HIV clinics. A total of 60 HIV infected, depressed individuals receiving care at an urban, outpatient HIV clinic will be randomly assigned to receive either the telephone psychotherapy intervention or enhanced usual care with non-specific telephone contact. The results will provide preliminary data on whether the telephone psychotherapy intervention for HIV infected depressed individuals is effective in reducing depression. The results will also be used to determine feasibility, accessibility, and whether the intervention leads to improved retention and better satisfaction.

Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Outcomes Assessor
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Depression
  • HIV Infections
  • Behavioral: Telephone-based CBT
    A form of CBT delivered over the telephone by a trained, licensed, master's or doctoral level clinician. The intervention consists of approximately 10 sessions conducted over approximately 14 weeks. Each session is approximately 30 to 50 minutes. All sessions begin with a depression rating and agenda setting and end with task assignments and summaries.
    Other Name: CONNECT
  • Behavioral: Enhanced Usual Care
    Participants randomized to this condition will be referred to receive in-person psychotherapy. Research study staff will help participants to set up their first appointment with a psychotherapist.
  • Experimental: Telephone-based CBT
    A form of CBT delivered over the telephone by a trained, licensed, master's or doctoral level clinician. The intervention consists of approximately 10 sessions conducted over approximately 14 weeks. Each session is approximately 30 to 50 minutes.
    Intervention: Behavioral: Telephone-based CBT
  • Active Comparator: Control
    Enhanced Usual Care
    Intervention: Behavioral: Enhanced Usual Care
