Cognitive Behavioral Therapy clinical trials at UCSF
3 in progress, 1 open to eligible people
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a type of therapy that can help with some mental health problems. UCSF is doing a clinical trial on a non-drug treatment program that targets improved cognition by improving sleep patterns. There are two other trials in progress, but they are not taking new participants.
Napping, Sleep, Cognitive Decline and Risk of Alzheimer's Disease
open to eligible people ages 65 years and up
This study aimed to pilot test a non-pharmacological (behavioral) treatment program targeting improved cognition through improving 24-h sleep-wake cycle in people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or mild Alzheimer's disease. A treatment program incorporating bright light therapy and a modified cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia will be developed to address 24-hour patterns of sleep. We will then pilot test its feasibility and explore its preliminary effects on improving sleep/napping and cognition in patients with MCI or mild Alzheimer's disease.

Supporting Peer Interactions to Expand Access to Digital Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Spanish-speaking Patients
Sorry, not yet accepting patients
Investigators will evaluate the implementation of an evidence-based, Spanish-language, digital, cognitive-behavioral therapy intervention (SilverCloud) in primary care settings for Latino patients with depression and/or anxiety. 426 participants will be enrolled in a two-armed trial comparing self-guided vs. supported dCBT (SilverCloud). At the provider level, investigators will compare the efficacy of provider referrals with the use of a clinic patient registry to identify candidates who could benefit from a digital mental health intervention.
