Heidelberg. In the context of a research project from the Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy of the Psychological Institute of the University of Heidelberg, we are looking for people who will soon be completing outpatient psychotherapy for the treatment of depressive illnesses, that is, persons undergoing outpatient psychotherapy less than two weeks ago.

The aim of the study is to examine how mental health develops and how to deal with feelings after completing outpatient psychotherapy for the treatment of depressive illnesses.

The study involves nine measurements every three months. Each time, it involves answering online questionnaires and editing the application. The app will ask participants five times a day for one week to provide information about their feelings and how to deal with them.

During the first meeting, as well as six months, one and two years after the first meeting, an interview will also take place. Interviews require attendance at the University of Heidelberg Psychological Institute. All other components of the study do not require any presence. With full participation in all measurement sites, participants receive a fee of € 400.

Information: Those wishing to participate can contact the research team by telephone on 0178.3165305 or by email: gefuehls studie@psychologie.uni-heidelberg.de. Interested persons can also register before completing therapy.
