Therapeutic interventions for depression study

Submitted by Zenova Williams

Marriage and family therapy program researchers are seeking participants with symptoms of depression who are interested in therapy. Those who meet the criteria for the study will be invited to five consecutive weeks of therapy sessions, with two sessions per week. Brain activity will be monitored through an electroencephalogram, or EEG, cap during these sessions at the K-State's Family Center, College of Human Ecology, in the Campus Creek Complex.

Participants will receive therapy at no cost and $30 at the one-month follow-up session. Eligible participants will be randomly assigned to either a eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy group or cognitive behavioral therapy group.

If interested or for more information, contact Zenova Williams at zwilliams@k-state.edu. This study has been reviewed by the K-State Institutional Review Board and has received approval #7182.
