Project description

In this project we investigate what the first--‐person perspective on depression, therapy process and outcome contributes to the knowledge gathered in an RCT. By means of mixed methodology, quantitative and qualitaitve data are integrated in order to become a broader understanding of depression and its therapeutical treatment. We aim to formulate implications for further outcome research and the clinical practice.
