根据英国皇家精神科医学院的网站(2009)“认知行为治疗(CBT)是最有效的患者中有四个或更多抑郁发作之前,根据新的研究来自荷兰。这项发表在12月出版的《英国精神病学》杂志上,表明全球定位系统(GPs)可以使用之前的数量集来确定哪些患者可能从治疗中获益并相应规定处理)。在最近的另一个研究中,比较的认知行为治疗(CBT)网站的信息对抑郁症发现,6个月后只有CBT网站明显有效地减少症状。1年之后,两个干预明显比没有干预(控制条件)。研究表明,互联网提供短暂的认知行为治疗可以有效地降低抑郁,但还不清楚这些收益是维护。澳大利亚的目的研究发表在2008年2月出版的《英国精神病学杂志》上,是互联网提供简短的心理教育和CBT的好处是否仍有6 - 12个月后,与控制条件相比,参与者被问及关于他们的生活方式。
According to the Royal College of Psychiatrists website (2009) "Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is most effective in patients who have had four or more prior episodes of depression, according to new research from The Netherlands. The study, published in the December issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry, suggests GPs could use the number of prior episodes to determine which patients are likely to benefit most from therapy and prescribe treatment accordingly). In another recent study, a comparison of a cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) website with an information website for depression has found that after 6 months only the CBT website was significantly effective in reducing symptoms. After 1 year, both interventions were significantly better than no intervention (control condition). Research has shown that internet-delivered brief CBT may be effective in reducing depression, but it has not been clear whether these gains are maintained over time. The aim of this Australian study, published in the February 2008 issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry, was to see whether the benefits of internet-delivered brief psychoeducation and CBT were still there 6 and 12 months later, compared with a control condition, in which participants were asked questions about their lifestyle.
