Abstract

This research was designed to examine the efficacy of a brief cognitive-behavioral psychoeducation model as an intervention for depressive and anxious symptoms, based on the Cognitive-Behavioral Analysis System of Psychotherapy (CBASP). One hundred fifty two participants were randomly assigned to the control and prevention groups. These participants completed symptom ratings of depression and anxiety at baseline, and again eight weeks later. Multivariate Analysis of Covariance (MANCOVA) revealed a significant effect of group, with the intervention group showing lower symptom scores at the follow-up session. The implications of this study include the development of the CBASP method as a computer-based prevention and intervention strategy.
