The purpose of this research study is to learn which psychological variables predict how much patients with depression will benefit from Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), well established psychotherapy for depression, and also how the variables change over the course of therapy. Patients are required to fill out measures that assess various psychological variables at three time points through 14 weeks of CBT. We plan to recruit 70 participants with depression who complete the study forms and treatment. This is a non-funded pilot study.
