  • An open trial of internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy for first year medical students

    Medical students experience high rates of depression, and often face barriers to receiving traditional mental health services. Internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy (iCBT) programs offer a more accessible method of receiving care. Here, we conducted an open trial of an iCBT program for medical students and characterize program usage, program users, and self-reported psychosocial symptoms and coping skills.

    There are a lack of clear guidelines for the dissemination of Internet-based cognitive behaviour therapy (ICBT) for childhood and adolescent anxiety in routine care. While self-guided ICBT has greater reach than therapist-guided ICBT, it is plagued by problems of low program adherence and many young people are not successfully treated. It is important that we identify models of ICBT that are accessible, but provide the right […]

    Global access to adequate resources to address postpartum depression (PPD) are limited and, at times, not reflective of the needs of pregnant women and new mothers. Gathering information about the preferences and needs of women when designing and implementing Internet-based programs is warranted, especially given the diversity of experiences related to childbirth. Thus, the aim of this study was to obtain user feedback on the content, […]

    Trans and gender diverse (TGD) young people are at high risk for mental health difficulties. Previous research has shown that three in four TGD young people have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and/or depression and almost one in two have attempted suicide. TGD young people experience barriers to traditional mental health services, commonly faced with inexperienced providers and discrimination. Video and computer […]

    Internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy (ICBT) is an efficacious form of treatment for anxiety and depression, yet it is still possible for clients to experience negative effects associated with treatment. In the ICBT literature, the term negative effects is broadly used to refer to all potentially adverse or unwanted events or experiences that are perceived as undesirable by the client and may or may not be associated with long-term symptoms […]

    Economic analyses of treatments for OCD have been limited. This study analysed the comparative economic benefits and costs of an internet-based CBT (iCBT) relative to internet-based progressive relaxation therapy (iPRT) control. These were benchmarked against current estimates for face-to-face CBT (ffCBT) sourced from literature. The benefits to society of providing increased access to treatment was assessed using a cost-benefit analysis […]
