Does computer-based cognitive therapy work? Two studies involving a tool called “Mind Gym” found different results. In one study, aspiring physicians who were struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts reduced those thoughts drastically – but in another study, the tool did not prove to be very helpful. WHYY’s behavioral health reporter Maiken Scott and psychologist Dan Gottlieb discussed these findings in their weekly conversation.
