NCT ID: NCT03459677 Recruiting - Depressive Symptoms Clinical Trials

Back2School - CBT Intervention for School Absenteeism

Start date: August 25, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The main objective of this study is to examine the efficacy of a new psychological intervention, called Back2School, in helping youths with problematic school absenteeism to return to school. Furthermore, the study will examine how well this program fares against the treatment or interventions that are usually given to youths with school absenteeism (treatment as usual or TAU). Based on previous studies we hypothesize that the Back2School intervention will be better at improving levels of school attendance as compared with treatment as usual (TAU).

NCT ID: NCT03448809 Completed - Anxiety Clinical Trials

Randomized Feasibility Trial of Mind My Mind

Start date: December 8, 2015
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

In this feasibility RCT of the modular and flexible cognitive and behavioural therapy (Mind My Mind, MMM) compared with treatment as usual, the overall research aim was to explore the trial design and the acceptability of the assessments, interventions and outcome measures among children, parents, teachers and therapists, and secondly to provide data to estimate the parameters required to design a definitive RCT.

NCT ID: NCT03445598 Recruiting - Depressive Symptoms Clinical Trials

Automated and Personalized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Start date: February 14, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study is designed to evaluate a novel online tool to deliver computerized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Participants will be randomized into three groups: experimental, active control, and waitlist. Participants in the experimental group will have access to the full-featured online tool designed to deliver CBT in an interactive and personalized manner. The participants in the active control group will have access to a limited version of the online tool designed to deliver basic CBT in plain text format. The waitlisted participants will be put on a waitlist for 6 weeks. We hypothesize that the experimental group participants will show a significantly higher reduction in depression symptom severity and will show increased engagement and adherence to the online tool.

NCT ID: NCT03425851 Recruiting - Stress Clinical Trials

Diaper Distribution in Low-Income Infants

Start date: March 14, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The adverse effects of poverty at the individual, family, and community level on health outcomes for children are well-established. Material hardship, defined as difficulty meeting basic needs such as food, housing, and consumer goods, has been shown to have negative physical and emotional effects on both children and their parents. Diaper need, defined as a lack of sufficient supply of clean and dry diapers, is an example of a material hardship. Community-based studies of low-income families have demonstrated that between 30-50% of caregivers of young children expressed diaper need. Some of these caregivers with diaper need reported reducing diaper changes, a practice that is associated with diaper dermatitis and urinary tract infections (UTIs). These community-based studies have also shown that diaper need is associated with maternal depression and parental stress, even after adjusting for demographic factors and food insecurity. Diaper need may be a specific modifiable marker of caregiver stress and depression, beyond its role as an indicator of poverty. In this pilot, randomized controlled trial of low-income newborns and their caregivers the investigators will test the feasibility of supplying diapers as an intervention to infants in low-income families and assess if it can improve both a child's health and their caregiver's overall health.

NCT ID: NCT03391596 Recruiting - Quality of Life Clinical Trials

Internet-based Intervention for Enhancing the Psychological Well-being of Elderly Caregivers

Start date: December 1, 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study will examine whether an Internet-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) intervention is effective, firstly, on reducing depressive symptoms, and, secondly, on improving well-being of elderly family caregivers. In our study, we will compare 1) the experimental Internet-based ACT group to 2) standardized institutional rehabilitation carried out in rehabilitation centers and to 3) support provided by voluntary family caregiver associations

NCT ID: NCT03377816 Not yet recruiting - Pain Clinical Trials

The Role of Emotional Processing in Improving the Quality of Life of Breast Cancer Patients

Start date: November 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to examine two mechanistic changes: emotion processing (awareness, expression and acceptance) and cholinergic anti-inflammatory processes (HRV and cytokine expression) through which an Art Therapy (AT) intervention reduces depression, pain and fatigue.

NCT ID: NCT03340948 Completed - Clinical trials for Coronary Artery Disease

The Mindfulness Intervention as Myocardial Infarction Rehabilitation Additive (MIMIRA) Study

Start date: January 31, 2012
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The Mindfulness Intervention as Myocardial Infarction Rehabilitation Additive (MIMIRA) study aimed at studying the feasibility and acceptability of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction - an 8 week course in meditation and yoga - in patients with a recent coronary artery event and elevated depressive symptoms. To address these questions patients with elevated scores on a depression scale were invited to participate in MBSR, and there evaluation of the course as well as a panel of psychological risk factors and resources was measured.

NCT ID: NCT03335358 Recruiting - Depression Clinical Trials

Testing a Positive Psychology-based Intervention for Couples Coping With Stroke

Start date: April 14, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study aims to pilot test an 8-week, self-administered dyadic (couples-based) positive psychology intervention for couples coping with stroke using a randomized, waitlist control design. Mood and well-being will be assessed pre- and post-intervention, and at 3-month follow-up. It is expected that both partners will demonstrate improvement in mood and well-being.

NCT ID: NCT03327259 Enrolling by invitation - Depressive Symptoms Clinical Trials

A Pilot Study of Therapist Guided Activity Practice for Depressive Symptoms

Start date: October 9, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

There is literature to support both the need for and efficacy of brief interventions for depressive symptoms, particularly among college students.Brief behavioral activation interventions (BATD) have gained recognition as efficacious treatments for depression; yet a recent study evidenced a substantial (39%) non-response rate (Kuyken et al., 2017). In accordance with behavioral models of depression, the treatment involves increasing activity and positive experience, to break the negative reinforcement cycle maintaining depressed mood. Thus, strategies that may facilitate increasing activity may improve BATD outcomes. The objective of the current study is to examine whether briefly practicing a target activity during an activity planning session (modified single session of BATD) increases the likelihood of completing the activity during the upcoming week. We hypothesized that guided activity practice may improve self-efficacy within session and activity completion in the upcoming week. We further aim to explore whether activity completion mediates depressive symptom change.

NCT ID: NCT03322774 Recruiting - Depressive Symptoms Clinical Trials

Sleep To Reduce Incident Depression Effectively

Start date: February 9, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This project will assess the effectiveness of a stepped-care model (i.e. digital Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (dCBT-I) followed by face-to-face CBT-I) in improving severity of insomnia and sleep outcomes in an insomnia cohort, including those at higher risk of depression. This project will also investigate the effectiveness of this stepped-care model in prevention of depression and any potential mediation by rumination as a modifiable behavior.
