ABSTRACT

Background and study aims Social anxiety disorder (SAD) is one of the most common mental disorders. Although effective treatments exist, a lot of people do not receive professional help. Internet-based treatments are an easily accessible alternative and have been shown to be effective in treating SAD. It remains unclear how much support is needed during an internet-based treatment. This study aims at investigating if the patients' mutual support via a discussion forum will increase the treatment success of a web-based intervention. Who can participate? 150 people will participate. To participate you must suffer from anxiety in social situations. Furthermore, participants have to be at least 18 years old, need access to the internet and have sufficient German language skills. Participants cannot undergo any other psychological treatment for the duration of the study. The study does not apply to persons with severe psychiatric disorders such as psychotic or bipolar disorder. What does the study involve? Participants will be randomly allocated to one of three groups. All groups will receive access to the web-based treatment but at different time points. Group 1 will receive a web-based self-help approach with individual therapist support conducted via email. Group 2 will receive the same web-based self-help approach, but with therapist-guided group support (six participants working together with the self-help program). Group 3 will receive the same intervention as group 2 but after 12 weeks. What are the possible benefits and risks of participating? Possible benefits of the study are the reduction of symptoms of SAD. Previous studies have shown that users of the web-based interventions felt better and more content after the treatment. There are no known negative side effects related to the treatment. However, it is unclear to what extent support by other participants improves the treatment outcome. Where is the study run from? The intervention is delivered via the internet. Thus, participants have to go on our website: http://www.online-therapy.ch/studie.The study will be run from the University of Bern, Switzerland. When is the study starting and how long is it expected to run for? The study will start in November 2013 and will continue to recruit participants until June 2014. The study will run until November 2014. Who is the main contact? Prof. Dr Thomas Berger thomas.berger@ptp.unibe.ch More... »
