|Title:||Self-guided internet administered treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder: Results from two open trials||Contributor(s):||Wootton, Bethany (author); Dear, Blake F (author); Johnston, Luke (author); Terides, Matthew D (author); Titov, Nickolai (author)||Publication Date:||2014||DOI:||10.1016/j.jocrd.2014.03.001||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/19933||Abstract:||Effective treatments for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) exist, however, many patients experience barriers to treatment. Internet-administered cognitive-behavioral therapy (iCBT), which has the potential to reduce these barriers, has recently been shown to be efficacious in the treatment of OCD. To date, only therapist-guided iCBT interventions have been studied for OCD. Self-guided iCBT, administered without a therapist, may help to further reduce barriers to treatment, particularly for those concerned about stigma or who are unlikely to engage in treatment with a therapist. The present article describes the results of two open-trial feasibility studies that examined the acceptability and preliminary efficacy of fully self-guided iCBT for symptoms of OCD. In both trials scores on the Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Inventory-Self-Report and the Dimensional Obsessive Compulsive Scale reduced significantly over time and moderate to large effect sizes were obtained. In trial 1, 29% met criteria for clinically significant change at 3-month follow-up and in trial 2, 32% met criteria for clinically significant change at 3-month follow-up. These results indicate that self-guided iCBT may be an acceptable and effective treatment for some individuals with obsessive-compulsive symptoms.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders, 3(2), p. 102-108||Publisher:||Elsevier BV||Place of Publication:||Netherlands||ISSN:||2211-3649
