This is the second phase (Phase B) of the main project "Bank for Thoughts", which has the following aims:
- Improvement of software for secured (encrypted and access-controlled) asynchronous text-based communication within health services. (Adjustments for use in psychiatry.)
- Open clinical trials with Internet-mediated psychotherapy or counselling in out-patient child and adolescent psychiatry.
- Development of indications and precautions for text-based Internet-mediated psychotherapy.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Psychiatric Disorders||Device: eTherapy|
This phase (Phase B) concentrates on qualitative evaluation of open clinical single case trials using asynchronous Internet-mediated text-dialogue for psychotherapeutic purposes.
Single patients in differing treatment phases, conditions, age and sex categories are interviewed after using Internet-contact as a supplementary tool in psychotherapy. Their therapists are interviewed as well.
The purpose is systematically gathering single-case experiences with the tool, to build a hypothesis for research and preliminary guidelines for experimental clinical use of Internet-mediated psychotherapy.
