Metacognitive Training for Depression (D-MCT) (Japanese)


トレーニングのベータ・バーションの実現可能性と効果は、出版されているパイロット研究(Jelinek, Otte, Arlt & Hauschildt, 2013)により確認されました。トレーニングは、うつ症状の軽減に効果があることが中等度のエフェクト・サイズが出たことでわかりました(Cohen’s d = 0.56-0.73)。また、認知バイアスと反すうが有意に下がり、自尊心が回復しました(エフェクト・サイズ d = 0.26 – 0.64)。

我々は、研究結果をトレーニング内容の向上のため活用しました。最新のRCT研究においては、身体トレーニング(ウォーキング)との比較を行いました。すべての患者さんは、ハンブルク・リハセンターで外来患者用標準心身治療プログラムを受けました。6ヶ月フォローアップ後、D-MCTを受療した患者さんのうつ症状が、身体トレーニングを受けた人たちよりも大きく改善しました(Jelinek et al. 2016).

Help us to help others!

In view of the challenging financial situation of many psychiatric hospitals, it is our goal to provide metacognitive training for depression (D-MCT) free of charge. Your donation is essential to our work and will help to improve the lives of many individuals suffering from depression. We would be very grateful if you would support D-MCT by donating to our program.

All donations will be used to support the further development of the D-MCT (future tasks: translation of modules into other languages, creating new graphics, hiring students to conduct D-MCT groups in clinics). Upon request, we will send you a receipt for your donation (please send an email to Steffen Moritz ( and include your mail address). Please inquire about different possibilities for sponsorships.
