Congratulations to Dr Nima Moghaddam who has had two new papers published over the past few months.

The first published in Clinical Rehabilitation is a systematic review examining behavioural activation treatment for depression in individuals with neurological conditions. The findings of the review revealed that the effectiveness of behavioural activation in reducing depression (in randomized controlled trials) varied from small (d‚ÄČ=‚ÄČ0.24) to large (d‚ÄČ=‚ÄČ1.7).

In the second paper, is entitled ‚ÄúPreventing relapse with personalized smart‚Äźmessaging after cognitive behavioural therapy: A proof‚Äźof‚Äźconcept evaluation‚ÄĚ and was published in the British Journal of Clinical Psychology. The paper found that, across a 12‚Äźmonth follow‚Äźup, participants receiving smart‚Äźmessaging showed greater health improvements than those who did not, suggesting that a low‚Äźintensity, personalized relapse prevention method can have a clinical benefit following CBT for common mental health problems.
