|Title:||Self-guided internet-delivered cognitive behavior therapy (iCBT) for obsessive-compulsive disorder: 12 month follow-up||Contributor(s):||Wootton, Bethany (author); Dear, Blake F (author); Johnston, Luke (author); Terides, Matthew D (author); Titov, Nickolai (author)||Publication Date:||2015||Open Access:||Yes||DOI:||10.1016/j.invent.2015.05.003||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/19639||Abstract:||Internet-delivered cognitive behavior therapy (iCBT) may reduce barriers to treatment faced by people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). To date, most research on iCBT for OCD has evaluated clinician-guided treatments. However, self-guided treatments, which do not involve contact with a clinician, have considerable public health potential and may be particularly advantageous for those patients who report stigma as a principal barrier to treatment. The findings of a recent trial of self-guided iCBT for symptoms of OCD highlighted the potential of this approach and found large within-group effect sizes from pre- to post-treatment on the YBOCS-SR (d = 137), sustained at 3-month follow-up (d = 1.17).1n addition, 32% of participants met criteria for clinically significant change at 3-month follow-up. The present study reports the long-term outcomes of that trial (N = 28). Twelve out of 18 participants (43%) completed the 12 month follow-up. A large within-group effect size was found on the YBOCS-SR (d = 1.08) and 33% met criteria for clinically significant change at 12-month follow-up. No significant changes in symptoms were found between 3-month follow-up and 12-month follow-up, demonstrating that participants maintained their treatment gains in the long term. These results add to the emerging literature supporting the potential of self-guided iCBT for individuals with symptoms of OCD.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Internet Interventions, 2(3), p. 243-247||Publisher:||Elsevier BV||Place of Publication:||Amsterdam, The Netherlands||ISSN:||2214-7829||Field of Research (FOR):||170106 Health, Clinical and Counselling Psychology||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||920410 Mental Health||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 59
