The Depression Research Laboratory
is one of the many research laboratories in the Department of Psychology at the University of Calgary. It is the location for a number of studies that investigate depression from a psychosocial perspective. Under the direction of Dr. Keith Dobson, the focus of the laboratory is on cognitive processes in depression, as well as cognitive-behavioral treatments of mood disorders. Studies include comparisons between clinically depressed participants and other groups, to identify specific factors associated with depression, as well as studies that focus on the continuing vulnerability of people who have recovered from depression for relapse into future episodes.
We hope that this introduction to the work that we are doing will stimulate your further interest in the topic of depression.
