Abstract:
Negative thoughts and feelings about the self dominate the perceptions of the depressed individual. This study presents an intervention based on an earlier study in which the origin, nature, and content of negative thoughts were described and strategies used by women to decrease their negative thoughts were identified. Based on the findings of this first study, interventions to decrease negative thoughts were designed and tested. Sixteen women were randomly assigned to either an experimental or control group. The experimental group particiapted in a 6-week psychoeducational group that focused on learning techniques to decrease negative thoughts. These techniques were primarily cognitive in nature. The control group continued with their usual psychiatric services. All subjects participated in an individual interview whose focus was to confirm the diagnosis of Major Depression and completed the Beck Depression Inventory, the Parental Attachment Inventory, and two instruments that measure negative thoughts, The Crandell Cognitions Inventory and the Automatic Thoughts Questionniare. After the intervention was completed, all subjects completed the instruments again. Comparison of the pre-and post-intervention scores on these measures were used to evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention. This poster depicts an ongoing research project designed to test nursing interventions that decrease negative thoughts experienced by depressed women.
