|Official title||The Impact of a Brief Cognitive Behavior Therapy Intervention Aimed at Improving Emotional Well-Being and Quality of Life for Individuals With Spinal Cord Injuries|
|Description||The goal of the current proposed research project is to investigate the potential efficacy of a group cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) intervention aimed at improving emotional well-being, specifically mood, adjustment and quality of life (QOL), after Spinal Cord Injury(SCI). The intervention will be adapted to meet the unique needs of patients suffering from an SCI. The study objectives are: (1) to evaluate the impact of a brief CBT intervention aimed at decreasing emotional distress and improving quality of life; (2) to evaluate the sustainability of CBT therapeutic gains over time; (3) to conduct sub group analyses in order to better determine why some patients may improve post CBT, while others may not.|
