[BA Practitioners] delivered an individually tailored programme re-engaging participants with positive environmental stimuli and developing depression management strategies. Participants were encouraged to increase their contact with individually specified positive situations and reduce their avoidance of other situations. Specific BA techniques included identification of depressed behaviours, analysis of the triggers and consequences of depressed behaviours, monitoring of activities, development of alternative goal-orientated behaviours, scheduling of activities, and development of alternative behavioural responses to rumination
[CBT Practitioners] delivered a personalised treatment programme based on an assessment of how participants’ beliefs lead to emotional distress and ineffectual coping. Participants used cognitive and behavioural exercises to specifically test the accuracy of those beliefs by identifying and modifying negative thoughts and beliefs that give rise to them. Specific techniques included participants monitoring moods and activities, planning of exercises to test negative beliefs, and thought records to identify and examine the accuracy of negative automatic thoughts and underlying beliefs
What am I doing causing me and others problems and what can I do differently?
John comes to CBT because of his depression. He is a 40 year old who has recently been made redundant. He is worried about getting a job again and his redundancy has also caused tension in his marriage. When questioned about how he spends his time now, he says he gets up late, intends to look for jobs but ends up doing very little. He feels demotivated, discouraged and, at times, hopeless. He is having trouble sleeping and hints that he may be using drinking to cope with his difficulties. At times, he says, he wonders if he will ever get a job again. He sees his redundancy as meaning that he is a failure. He talks in a flat, slow monotone. As he talks, he is becoming more sad and more hopeless.
