Clinical Trial Summary

The study will evaluate the efficacy of metacognitive training for depression in later life (MCT-Silver) vs. cognitive remediation (mybraintraining©) in reducing depressive symptoms among older adults.


Clinical Trial Description

The study examines the efficacy of Metacognitive Training for depression in later life (MCT-Silver). The study intends to investigate the extent to which MCT-Silver leads to a significant reduction in depressive symptoms compared to an active control group (mybraintraining©) (primary outcome: change in clinician-assessed depressive symptoms from t0 to t1 and t2). Secondary outcomes include change in self-reported depressive symptoms and dysfunctional (meta) cognitive beliefs, as well as quality of life, rumination, self-reported anxiety, attitudes toward aging and neuropsychological functioning from t0 to t1 and t2. The study design is a randomized-controlled trial with one intervention group and one active control group. ;
