Predictors of Treatment Outcome With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression
The purpose of this research study is to learn whether specific types of brain imaging and psychological testing can predict how much benefit patients with depression will receive from a well-studied psychotherapy for depression, called cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and how the brain imaging and psychological tests change with treatment. We will also be comparing brain scans from this study between individuals suffering from depression and volunteers without depression.
This study offers 14 sessions of one-on-one cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) over twelve weeks, administered by an experienced doctoral-level psychologist or psychiatrist.
