Clinical Trial Summary

Depression is a major handicap in daily life and is often treated by behavioral activation (CA), including the Brief Behavioral Activation Treatment for Depression (BATD).The CA principle is to set up activities, in keeping with the values of the individual. Other tools associated with the CA deserve to be explored as virtual reality (VR), which offers scenarios and sensations similar to real life and a sense of life. in a safe and controlled environment, with the support of the therapist.The main objective is to compare the effectiveness of the program "BATD with RV" versus "BATD without RV" on the intensity of the depressive symptomatology and CA in everyday life.

Methodology: This is a randomized, blinded study. Inclusion criteria are: 18 to 59 years old; unipolar depression diagnosis; Showing a score of ≥ 17 on the BDI-II. 70 subjects will be recruited over 24 months and randomized into 2 groups: 1) intervention group program BATD in VR; 2) BATD program intervention group without RV, lasting 45 minutes.

Judgment Criteria: The effectiveness of the intervention will be evaluated by the BDI-II scale and the Behavioral Activation for Depression Scale (BADS).

Outcomes: A new management of depression (AC with RV) to improve the quality of life of the patient; proof of its effectiveness; a generalization of this care; and recognition of its effectiveness in the scientific community.
