A Study of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Self-Effectivenss, and Depression in People with Chronic Pain
About this study
The purpose of this study is to explore the role of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment for depression, on self-effectiveness (feeling empowered to accomplish a given task) and depression in persons with chronic pain and depression. Past research has shown that persons with chronic pain show improvement in self-efficacy and depression scores when they are using CBT. The Pain rehabilitation Center (PRC) at Mayo Clinic is adding CBT focused groups to better understand the role of CBT on self-efficacy and depression in persons with chronic pain and depression.
