Just as a brief review of the study, you now have immediate and unlimited access to the deprexis treatment website for the next 8 weeks. deprexis is self-guided, so you can determine how often you access the material. Below, we have added some suggestions for using the deprexis program:
Our experience has shown that people who actively engage with the deprexis program can really benefit from it. We suggest 1-2 “chats” a week, for 30 minutes to an hour, over at least 4 weeks.
Approach the treatment with an attitude of openness and curiosity. Remember that you might benefit more from one “chat” than another and that the suggestions are tailored to fit you personally.
While you can use your browsers “back” button to view a previous page, you are not able to change your given answer. This is because the deprexis site is designed to mimic a conversation you might have with a therapist. Don’t worry about missing out on information because of the way you have responded. In general, you will receive all of the information deprexis has to offer you, just sometimes in a different pattern.
Once you have completed all of the chats, you can work on the individual topics again any time you want to.
Take the time to listen to the audio files. A lot of the time, they are different exercises you can try out or different ways to think about the information you have just covered.
Over the next 8 weeks, while you are using the deprexis program, we will email you a brief questionnaire every other week. This questionnaire will only take about 2 minutes to complete and will help us track your mood over the course of treatment. In addition to these emailed questionnaires, the deprexis program itself will send you periodic email reminders and tips.
In approximately 8 weeks, after you have completed the deprexis program, you will be emailed follow-up questionnaires and we will contact you to complete your follow-up phone interview.
If you have any problems with the deprexis site, or have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
Again, thank you so much for your participation!
