Targeting behavioural activation better both for decreasing depression and increasing wellbeing (second post)
Last updated on 6th August 2015
In yesterday's post "Targeting behavioural activation better both for decreasing depression and increasing wellbeing (first post)", I suggested that there are at least three (and probably many more) interesting ways that could make behavioural activation (BA) both more targeted and potentially more effective. I wrote about aiming BA particularly to "problem solve" triggering factors (especially interpersonal ones) that seemed to have contributed to deterioration in a subject's psychological state. I also mentioned the recent Mazzuchelli et al paper "Behavioral activation interventions for well-being: a meta-analysis" showing how helpful BA can also be at building wellbeing as well as treating depression.
