Could Behavioral Activation (BA) be a simpler yet efficient alternative to Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) in treating depression?


On April 8, the Department of Women's and Children's Health invited Professor David Richards to give a lecture at the Rudbeck Laboratory. David Richards (University of Exeter) is an internationally renowned health services researcher with a global reputation in developing, testing and evaluating complex non-pharmacological interventions. He presented and discussed the results of the COBRA study - one of the largest studies ever comparing KBT with Behavioral Activation (BA) as a treatment for depression, which has also been published in The Lancet. The lecture was recorded and can be viewed via this link:
