T.E.A.M. Feasibility and Efficacy Study 2.0

T.E.A.M. psychotherapy was developed by one of the founders of cognitive therapy, David Burns and builds on traditional CBT with an emphasis on T = Testing, E = Empathy, A = Agenda Setting (assessing and building motivation) and M = Methods (including cognitive and behavioral methods). Because TEAM therapy is a data-driven therapy, its delivery hinges on the use of symptom measures and measures of the therapeutic alliance at every session with every patient. These measures are now available for collection thru computerized forms, making their collection and review considerably more accessible and efficient for the patient and therapist.

The following hypotheses will be tested:

1. TEAM psychotherapy using computerized measurement collection is safe and feasible.

2. TEAM psychotherapy using computerized measurement collection shows evidence of efficacy by exploratory non inferiority testing compared to benchmark studies with similar psychotherapeutic modalities

3. Evidence for efficacy is strong enough to justify pursuit of an experimental randomized controlled clinical trial of TEAM therapy for major depressive disorder versus treatment as usual.
