Treatment for Anxiety and Depression

The Affect Treatment for Depression and Anhedonia study is designed to examine which individuals with symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress are more likely to benefit from a two different versions of therapy. Each of these therapies include components and therapeutic strategies that have been demonstrated to be effective for these problem areas. One therapy focuses on enhancing and increasing positive coping and life strategies, whereas the other therapy focuses on decreasing or eradicating negative coping and life strategies. Both versions involve examining thoughts, modifying behaviors, and focusing on breathing. 

Individuals who seeking treatment for anxiety, depression, and stress, are eligible for the study if they are between the ages of 18 to 65, are English speaking, are not currently suffering from major medical conditions, and are un-medicated.

Treatment is conducted one on one, over 15 weekly visits (at the UCLA Psychology Clinic). Assessments are conducted prior to beginning treatment, at 5 weeks, at 10 weeks, at completion of treatment, and at a 1 month follow up. These assessments include diagnostic evaluations, a battery of self-report questionnaires, behavioral observation, and physiological recording in a laboratory.

There are no fees for any of the assessments (prior to treatment, at 5 weeks, at 10 weeks, completion of treatment, or follow up) or treatment. Parking costs for each assessment are reimbursed upon request. In addition, participants are offered $75 for each assessment. Participants are responsible for parking fees at all therapy visits.
