Abstract

Homework assignments are an integral part of cognitive therapy (CT) for depression, though facilitating homework engagement in patients with depression can be a challenge. We sought to examine three classes of therapist behaviors as predictors of homework engagement in early sessions of CT: therapist behaviors related to the review of homework, the assignment of homework, and efforts to help patients overcome obstacles to completing homework. In a sample of 66 depressed outpatients participating in CT, therapist behaviors involved in assigning homework predicted both CT-specific homework engagement and more general homework engagement. Therapist behaviors involved in homework review were not predictive of homework engagement. Our findings are consistent with the possibility that therapists’ emphasis of key elements of the homework assignment process enhances patients’ engagement in homework in early sessions of CT.

To examine the average relationships between the scales, correlations were calculated separately at each session, then r values were transformed to z scores, averaged across sessions, and finally these z scores were transformed back to r values.
