Predictors of outcome of group and internet-based cognitive behaviour therapy.

By V. Spek, I. Nyklicek, P. Cuijpers and V. Pop


.01), female gender (F(1,111) = 6.45, p = .01), and lower neuroticism scores (F(1,111) = 7.24, p = .01) predicted better outcome after both treatments. In the group intervention, participants with higher altruism scores improved significantly more after treatment (F(1,111) = 3.94, p = .05) compared to the internet-based condition. Limitations Axis-II disorders were not considered; the study assessed personality traits rather than personality disorders. Conclusions Outcomes of different types of cognitive behavior therapy for sub-threshold depression are partly predicted by different participant characteristics. Neuroticism was associated with worse outcomes in both types of treatment, while altruism seems to be exclusively related to more favorable outcomes in the group treatment.
