Colloquium | February 27 | 12:40-2 p.m. | 104 Genetics & Plant Biology Building
Adrian Aguilera, Assistant Professor, University of California, Berkeley
Dr. Aguilera will discuss his research developing and testing an automated text messaging intervention as an adjunct to treatment in a public sector integrated behavioral healthcare clinic. He will detail findings from a clinical trial and discuss how data can be utilized to improve monitoring of depression and detection of key intervention points. Key findings are that 1) automated texting increases adherence to a group psychotherapy intervention, 2) mood ratings via text approximate PHQ-9 scores, and 3) we can predict attendance utilizing daily mood ratings.
