Abstract

Background: No studies have explored the acceptability of Behavioural Activation and Guided Self-Help interventions for depression with people who have intellectual disabilities. Method: Twenty-five participants were purposively sampled from participants taking part in a trial comparing Behavioural Activation with a Guided Self-Help intervention. A framework analysis was used to analyse interviews covering participants’ expectations and views of therapy. Results: Participants were largely positive about both interventions. However, they identified specific aspects of each intervention which they had found helpful. All participants valued the therapeutic relationship. The participants also had a number of criticisms and suggestions for improving the therapies. A common concern was the time-limited nature of the interventions and a wish for longer-term help. Overall, both sets of participants felt the interventions had relevance for their wider lives. Conclusions: The participants reported having positive engagement with the therapies but expressed a wish for longer-term supportive relationships.
