  • A randomized trial of brief web-based prevention of unhealthy alcohol use: Participant self-selection compared to a male young adult source population

    Publication date: March 2020

    Source: Internet Interventions, Volume 19

    Author(s): Nicolas Bertholet, Jean-Bernard Daeppen, Joseph Studer, Emily C. Williams, John A. Cunningham, Gerhard Gmel, Bernard Burnand

    Abstract
    Background

    How much a randomized controlled trial (RCT) sample is representative of or differs from its source population is a challenging question, with major implications for generalizability of results. It is particularly crucial for freely-available web-based interventions tested in RCTs since they are designed to reach broad populations and could increase health disparities if they fail to reach the more […]

  • Client experiences of blending a coping-focused therapy for auditory verbal hallucinations with smartphone-based ecological momentary assessment and intervention

    Publication date: March 2020

    Source: Internet Interventions, Volume 19

    Author(s): Elissa Moore, Anne Williams, Imogen Bell, Neil Thomas

    Abstract

    This study explored participants' experiences of a novel intervention blending ecological momentary assessment and intervention (EMA/I) digital technologies with four face-to-face therapy sessions to improve coping in people who experience persisting auditory verbal hallucinations (hear voices). A smartphone app was used to deliver prompts to facilitate both self-monitoring and self-management of voices. Analysis of data recorded by the app was also used in-session to develop an […]

  • Does concurrent medication usage affect patient response to internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy for depression and anxiety?

    Publication date: March 2020

    Author(s): Michael Edmonds, Hugh McCall, Blake F. Dear, Nickolai Titov, Heather D. Hadjistavropoulos

    Abstract
    Background

    There is growing interest in Internet-delivered cognitive behavioural therapy (ICBT) as an alternative to face-to-face therapy for anxiety and depression because it reduces barriers to accessing traditional treatment (e.g., travel distance, cost, stigma). Extensive research has demonstrated that ICBT is an effective treatment for anxiety and depression and that it produces effect sizes comparable to medication and face-to-face therapy. […]

  • Development of Grip self-help: An online patient-tailored self-help intervention for functional somatic symptoms in primary care

    Publication date: March 2020

    Source: Internet Interventions, Volume 19

    Author(s): Judith G.M. Rosmalen, Anne van Gils, M. Angélica Acevedo Mesa, Robert A. Schoevers, Rei Monden, Denise J.C. Hanssen

    Abstract

    Functional Somatic Symptoms (FSS) are somatic symptoms for which no somatic cause can be identified despite adequate diagnostic testing. FSS are common, costly, and disabling, and treatment options are limited.

    Psychotherapy is one of few evidence-based treatments for FSS. Yet, this form of therapy is not widely used, since it is usually reserved for severe symptoms, requires a highly trained therapist, and is not […]

  • A mobile application for panic disorder and agoraphobia: Insights from a multi-methods feasibility study

    Publication date: March 2020

    Source: Internet Interventions, Volume 19

    Author(s): Lara Ebenfeld, Stefan Kleine Stegemann, Dirk Lehr, David Daniel Ebert, Burkhardt Funk, Heleen Riper, Matthias Berking

    Abstract
    Background

    Panic disorder with and without agoraphobia (PD) is a common psychological disorder. Internet-based interventions have the potential to offer highly scalable low-threshold evidence-based care to people suffering from PD. GET.ON Panic is a newly developed internet-based intervention addressing symptoms of PD. In order to transfer the training into the daily life of the individuals, we integrated mobile […]

  • Intermittent mindfulness practice can be beneficial, and daily practice can be harmful. An in depth, mixed methods study of the “Calm” app's (mostly positive) effects

    Publication date: March 2020

    Source: Internet Interventions, Volume 19

    Author(s): Joseph Clarke, Steve Draper

    Abstract
    Objectives

    Despite a weak evidence base, daily use of mindfulness-based self-help smartphone applications (apps) is said to promote wellbeing. However, many do not use these apps in the way that app developers and mindfulness proponents recommend. We sought to determine whether the “Calm” app works, and whether it does so even when it is used intermittently.

    Methods

    Employing a mixed-methods design, we recruited a self-selected sample of 269 students from a Scottish […]
