Brief Behavioral Interventions for Symptoms of Depression and Insomnia in University Primary Care.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To describe how behavioral activation (BA) for depression and stimulus control (SC) for insomnia can be modified to a brief format for use in a university primary care setting, and to evaluate preliminarily their effectiveness in reducing symptoms of depression and insomnia, respectively, using data collected in routine clinical care.

PARTICIPANTS/METHODS:

Chart review data were obtained for 11 patients treated between August 2009 and December 2010 with 1 session of brief BA for depression and 17 patients treated with 1 session of brief SC for insomnia.

RESULTS:

At 2-week follow-up, patients reported significant decreases in symptoms of depression on the Patient Health Questionnaire-9, t(10) = 3.95, p < .05, and insomnia on the Insomnia Severity Index, t(16) = 5.43, p < .05, respectively.

CONCLUSIONS:

This case report provides preliminary evidence of the external validity of brief BA and SC after they were adapted for use within university primary care.
