In this online study we aim to test the feasibility and effects of an extended 4-session imagery activity planning training, delivered over the internet. The study will be conducted with volunteers from the general population who report mild to moderate feelings of low mood and sadness based on established cut-offs on a self-report rating scale and who fulfill diagnostic criteria according to the DSM-5 for a major depressive episode on a structured interview.

We will measure behavioral activation, mental well-being and changes in depressive symptoms over the course of the study. We will explore the feasibility and acceptability of the training program through session attendance, completion rates, written feedback and self-report questionnaires.
