Tinnitus : a multidisciplinary approach by David Baguley( )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tinnitus is a 'phantom auditory perception' defined as the experience of sound in the absence of any appropriate external stimulus. The sounds perceived may appear very intense, and commonly are experienced as hissing, buzzing, whistling and sizzling, although many other experiences are reported. Epidemological studies suggest that about 1-3% of the adult population have severe chronic tinnitus, in the sense that it causes disruption of everyday activities, affects mood, and often causes disturbed sleep patterns." "However, tinnitus is far more common in the general population with more than 10% experiencing persistent spontaneous tinnitus. Tinnitus: A Multidisciplinary Approach provides a broad and detailed account of the recent developments in tinnitus research and clinical management. It represents a collaborative effort to summarize what is new, but also to provide an evidence-based summary of the available literature."--Jacket
Guided internet-based treatments in psychiatry by Nils Lindefors( )

16 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a practically oriented overview of internet-based treatments in psychiatry and mental health care, which represent a relatively new research area and offer a novel clinical approach. The principal focus is on internet-based cognitive behavior therapy, as this is currently the best example of evidence-based internet interventions in the field. Applications are described in a wide range of conditions, including, for example, depression, panic disorder, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders and addictions. Research background, clinical trials and evidence for efficacy and effectiveness are discussed and helpful case descriptions, provided. Information is also included on cost-effectiveness and other relevant aspects of health economics and on new technologies and future challenges. Guided Internet-Based Treatments in Psychiatry will be of great interest for practitioners and researchers alike
The internet and CBT : a clinical guide by Gerhard Andersson( Book )

17 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Japanese and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Preface This book is the result of several years of hard work developing and evaluating the use of the Internet in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). It started when two students from the psychology program in Uppsala, Sweden, knocked on my door and asked me if I could supervise their final Master of Science thesis for their psychology diplomas. The idea they had sounded odd, but I hesitated for only a few minutes. We then planned one of the first trials in the world on Internet-delivered CBT (ICBT) for headache. I am of course forever grateful that they came to my room, and later one of them and several other psychology students ended up writing their theses and completing their PhDs on the topic of ICBT. One of them - now professor - Per Carlbring - became a close co-worker, and without him much of the work would never have been completed. Then followed other talented students, research students and clinicians who all have contributed much to the development of the field. I would love to list them all (which would mean several extra pages), but you can get a hunch of who they are by the research papers referenced in this book. Some have worked with me for a while and invested a lot of their time creating the systems and programming. Others are extremely skilled as clinicians, treatment developers, methodologists, and believe it or not there are even those who have all of these skills (and come from Iceland ...)"--Provided by publisher
Mit Tinnitus leben lernen ein Manual für Therapeuten und Betroffene by Cornelia Weise( )

6 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieses Manual zur Tinnitusbewältigung basiert auf kognitiver Verhaltenstherapie und stellt einen Weg aus dem Dschungel falsch angepriesener Therapien dar. Es holt Tinnitusbetroffene bei ihrem Leidensdruck und ihren Beeinträchtigungen im Alltag ab und zeigt ihnen wissenschaftlich auf Wirksamkeit geprüfte Möglichkeiten auf, mit ihrem Ohrgeräusch leben zu lernen. Das Besondere am vorliegenden Leitfaden besteht darin, dass er sich zugleich an die Tinnitusbetroffenen selbst wie auch an die Behandler richtet: Zum einen bietet es in patientengerechter Sprache eine leicht verständliche Aufklärung über das Phänomen Tinnitus sowie viele Ideen zur Selbsthilfe, zum anderen ermöglicht es einen praxisnahen, klar strukturierten Einstieg in die kognitiv-verhaltenstherapeutische Tinnitusbewältigung. Ein großer Anteil an Patienten, die unter einem chronischen Tinnitus leiden, erhält keine angemessene Unterstützung in der Bewältigung ihres Ohrgeräusches. Im Gegenteil - aufgrund mangelnder Zugänglichkeit und Aufklärung nehmen viele Tinnitusbetroffene Behandlungen in Anspruch, deren Wirksamkeit wissenschaftlich nicht gesichert ist, die in der Regel erfolglos sind und zudem viel Geld kosten. Im Gegensatz dazu wurden die Inhalte dieses Leitfadens von international ausgewiesenen Experten in der Behandlung von Tinnitus zusammengestellt. Mit diesem Leitfaden gelingt es Behandlern und Patienten, gemeinsam den Tinnitus erfolgreich zu meistern. Inhalt: · Umfangreiche Hintergrundinformationen zum Hörsystem, dem Tinnitus und dessen Entstehung · 18 Behandlungsmodule mit zahlreichen und vielseitigen Arbeitsmaterialie · Strategien, um Probleme zu bewältigen, die mit dem Tinnitus einhergehen können Die Autoren: Dr. Cornelia Weise ist Diplom-Psychologin und Psychologische Psychotherapeutin. Seit vielen Jahren beschäftigt Sie sich mit dem Thema Tinnitus und anderen körperlichen Symptomen, die zu psychischer Belastung und Einschränkungen im Alltag führen können. Dr. Maria Kleinstäuber ist Diplom-Psychologin und Psychologische Psychotherapeutin. Sie beschäftigt sich mit der Wirksamkeit von Psychotherapie bei verschiedenen körperlichen Symptomen, die mit psychischen Belastungen einhergehen. Dr. Viktor Kaldo ist lizensierter Psychologe Er beschäftigt sich seit mehr als 10 Jahren mit der Behandlung von Tinnitus und hat gemeinsam mit Professor Andersson ein Selbsthilfemanual für Tinnitusbetroffene entwickelt und in verschiedenen Studien evaluiert Professor Gerhard Andersson ist lizensierter Psychologe und Psychotherapeut. Er beschäftigt sich seit langen Jahren mit der Erforschung von Tinnitus, dessen Ursachen und Konsequenzen sowie möglichen Behandlungsansätzen. Er ist nicht nur ein Pionier im Bereich der Tinnitusbehandlung, sondern auch auf dem Gebiet der internetbasierten Selbsthilfebehandlung

4 editions published between 2013 and 2020 in Swedish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Har du ett klingande, ringande, tjutande, brusande, surrande, visslande ljud i huvudet eller öronen som påverkar ditt dagliga liv? Ett stort antal personer i Sverige upplever att tinnitus inverkar på deras mående, sömn, koncentrationsförmåga och livskvalitet. Ljudet kan uppfattas störande i ett flertal situationer och ljudmiljöer såsom i tystnad, vid restaurangbesök eller vid samtal.

Guided and unguided CBT for social anxiety disorder and/or panic disorder via the Internet and a smartphone application: study protocol for a randomised controlled trial by Philip Lindner( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Background: Smartphone technology presents a novel and promising opportunity to extend the reach of psychotherapeutic interventions by moving selected parts of the therapy into the real-life situations causing distress. This randomised controlled trial will investigate the effects of a transdiagnostic, Internet-administered cognitive behavioural (iCBT) self-help program for anxiety, supplemented with a smartphone application. The effect of added therapist support will also be studied. Methods/Design: One hundred and fifty participants meeting diagnostic criteria for social anxiety disorder and/or panic disorder will be evenly randomised to either one of three study groups: 1, smartphone-supplemented iCBT with therapist support; 2, smartphone-supplemented iCBT without therapist support; or 3, an active waiting list control group with delayed treatment. Primary outcome measure will be the Generalised Anxiety Disorder 7-item self-rating scale. Secondary measures include other anxiety, depression and quality of life measures. In addition to pre- and post-treatment measurements, the study includes two mid-treatment (days 24 and 48) and two follow-up assessments (12 and 36 months) to assess rapid and long-term effects. Discussion: To our knowledge, this is the first study to investigate the effectiveness of smartphone-supplemented iCBT for anxiety disorders. Hence, the findings from this trial will constitute great advancements in the burgeoning and promising field of smartphone-administered psychological interventions. Limitations are discussed
The EVIDENT-trial: protocol and rationale of a multicenter randomized controlled trial testing the effectiveness of an online-based psychological intervention by Jan Philipp Klein( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Background Depressive disorders are among the leading causes of worldwide disability with mild to moderate forms of depression being particularly common. Low-intensity treatments such as online psychological treatments may be an effective way to treat mild to moderate depressive symptoms and prevent the emergence or relapse of major depression. Methods/Design This study is a currently recruiting multicentre parallel-groups pragmatic randomized-controlled single-blind trial. A total of 1000 participants with mild to moderate symptoms of depression from various settings including in- and outpatient services will be randomized to an online psychological treatment or care as usual (CAU). We hypothesize that the intervention will be superior to CAU in reducing depressive symptoms assessed with the Personal Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9, primary outcome measure) following the intervention (12 wks) and at follow-up (24 and 48 wks). Further outcome parameters include quality of life, use of health care resources and attitude towards online psychological treatments. Discussion The study will yield meaningful answers to the question of whether online psychological treatment can contribute to the effective and efficient prevention and treatment of mild to moderate depression on a population level with a low barrier to entry

The effects on depression of Internet-administered behavioural activation and physical exercise with treatment rationale and relapse prevention: study protocol for a randomised controlled trial by Per Carlbring( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Background Despite their potential as low-threshold, low-cost and high-flexibility treatments of depression, behavioural activation and physical exercise have not yet been directly compared. This study will examine the effects of these interventions, administered via the Internet. The added effect of providing a treatment rationale will also be studied, as well as a relapse prevention program featuring cognitive behavioural therapy components. Methods/Design This randomised controlled trial will include 500 participants meeting the diagnostic criteria for major depression, recruited in multiple cycles and randomised to either a waiting list control group with delayed treatment, or one of the four treatment groups: (1) physical exercise without a clear treatment rationale; (2) physical exercise with treatment rationale; (3) behavioural activation with treatment rationale; or (4) behavioural activation without a clear treatment rationale. Post treatment, half of the participants will be offered a relapse prevention program. Primary outcome measure will be the Patient Health Questionnaire 9-item. Secondary measures include diagnostic criteria for depression, as well as self-reported anxiety, physical activity and quality of life. Measurements - done via telephone and the Internet - will be collected pre-treatment, weekly during treatment period, immediately post treatment and then monthly during a 24-month follow-up period. Discussion The results of this study will constitute an important contribution to the body of knowledge of the respective interventions. Limitations are discussed. Trial registration NCT01619930
Choosing between Internet-based psychodynamic versus cognitive behavioral therapy for depression: a pilot preference study by Robert Johansson( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Background Major depression is a world-wide problem that can be treated with various forms of psychotherapy. There is strong research support for treating major depression using cognitive behavior therapy delivered in the format of guided self-help via the Internet (ICBT). Recent research also suggests that psychodynamic psychotherapy can be delivered as guided self-help via the Internet (IPDT) and that it seem to be as effective as ICBT for mild to moderate depression. However, no head-to-head comparison between the two treatments exists. In the field of Internet interventions it is largely unexplored if treatment preference affects outcome and adherence. Methods Participants were allocated to IPDT or ICBT based on their stated preference. More than half of the participants preferred ICBT (N = 30) over IPDT (N = 14). Differences in efficacy between treatments were explored. Correlations between strength of preference and treatment outcome, adherence to treatment and completion of the whole treatment program were explored. Data were collected before and after treatment, as well as in a 7-month follow-up. Results During the treatment period, both programs performed equally well in reducing symptoms. More participants who received IPDT completed the entire program. At follow-up, mixed-effects models showed that participants who chose ICBT improved more in terms of quality of life. The ICBT group also had a significant increase in participants who recovered from their depression from post-treatment to follow-up. Exploratory analyses indicated that strength of preference was correlated with adherence to treatment and completion of the whole program, and long-term outcome for the ICBT group. Conclusions Few differences were found during the acute treatment phase, but the long-term effects are in favor of ICBT. Strength of preference for treatment seems to have a predictive value. Further research comparing the efficacy of ICBT and IPDT, and the effects of preference matching and strength of preference, is warranted
Use of the 'patient journey' model in the internet-based pre-fitting counseling of a person with hearing disability: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial by Vinaya Manchaiah( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Background Hearing impairment is one of the most frequent chronic conditions. Persons with a hearing impairment (PHI) have various experiences during their 'journey' through hearing loss. In our previous studies we have developed a 'patient journey' model of PHI and their communication partners (CPs). We suggest this model could be useful in internet-based pre-fitting counseling of a person with hearing disability (PHD). Methods/Design A randomized controlled trial (RCT) with waiting list control (WLC) design will be used in this study. One hundred and fifty eight participants with self-reported hearing disability (that is, score>20 in the Hearing Handicap Questionnaire (HHQ)) will be recruited to participate in this study. They will be assigned to one of two groups (79 participants in each group): (1) Information and counseling provision using the 'patient journey' model; and (2) WLC. They will participate in a 30 day (4 weeks) internet-based counseling program based on the 'patient journey' model. Various outcome measures which focuses on hearing disability, depression and anxiety, readiness to change and acceptance of hearing disability will be administered pre (one week before) and post (one week and six months after) intervention to evaluate the effectiveness of counseling. Discussion Internet-based counseling is being introduced as a viable option for audiological rehabilitation. We predict that the 'patient journey' model will have several advantages during counseling of a PHD. Such a program, if proven effective, could yield cost and time-efficient ways of managing hearing disability
Experiences of an internet-based support and coaching model for adolescents and young adults with ADHD and autism spectrum disorder -a qualitative study by Helena Sehlin( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Background: There is a great demand for non-medical treatment and support targeting the needs of adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). There is also a lack of qualitative studies providing in-depth insight into these individuals own experiences within this area. The current study aimed to explore how adolescents and young adults with ADHD, ASD or both experienced taking part in an internet-based support and coaching intervention. Methods: Sixteen participants with ASD, ADHD or both who had participated in an 8-week internet-based support and coaching model, were interviewed using semi-structured interviews. Data was analyzed using qualitative content analysis. Results: Analysis yielded three themes; Deciding to participate, Taking part in the coaching process and The significance of format. Various motives for joining were expressed by participants, such as viewing the technology as familiar and appealing and expecting it to be better suited to their situation. There was also a previously unfulfilled need for support among participants. In deciding to take part in the intervention the coaches competence and knowledge were considered essential, often in the light of previously negative experiences. Taking part in the coaching process meant feeling reassured by having someone to turn to in view of shared obstacles to seeking and receiving help. The support was used for talking through and receiving advice on matters related to their diagnosis. Findings further revealed appreciation for aspects relating to the format such as communicating through the written word, being in ones own home and an experience of immediacy. Some disadvantages were voiced including incomplete personal interaction and failing technology. There were also suggestions for greater flexibility. Conclusions: The in-depth qualitative data obtained from this study suggest that the current model of support and the internet-based format have specific qualities that could play an important role in the support of adolescents and young adults with ADHD and ASD. Although not a replacement for face-to-face interaction, it could be a promising complement or alternative to other support and treatment options
Internet-versus group-administered cognitive behaviour therapy for panic disorder in a psychiatric setting: a randomised trial by Jan Bergström( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Background: Internet administered cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is a promising new way to deliver psychological treatment, but its effectiveness in regular care settings and in relation to more traditional CBT group treatment has not yet been determined. The primary aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of Internet- and group administered CBT for panic disorder (with or without agoraphobia) in a randomised trial within a regular psychiatric care setting. The second aim of the study was to establish the cost-effectiveness of these interventions. Methods: Patients referred for treatment by their physician, or self-referred, were telephone-screened by a psychiatric nurse. Patients fulfilling screening criteria underwent an in-person structured clinical interview carried out by a psychiatrist. A total of 113 consecutive patients were then randomly assigned to 10 weeks of either guided Internet delivered CBT (n = 53) or group CBT (n = 60). After treatment, and at a 6-month follow-up, patients were again assessed by the psychiatrist, blind to treatment condition. Results: Immediately after randomization 9 patients dropped out, leaving 104 patients who started treatment. Patients in both treatment conditions showed significant improvement on the main outcome measure, the Panic Disorder Severity Scale (PDSS) after treatment. For the Internet treatment the within-group effect size (pre-post) on the PDSS was Cohen's d = 1.73, and for the group treatment it was d = 1.63. Between group effect sizes were low and treatment effects were maintained at 6-months follow-up. We found no statistically significant differences between the two treatment conditions using a mixed models approach to account for missing data. Group CBT utilised considerably more therapist time than did Internet CBT. Defining effect as proportion of PDSS responders, the cost-effectiveness analysis concerning therapist time showed that Internet treatment had superior cost-effectiveness ratios in relation to group treatment both at post-treatment and follow-up. Conclusions: This study provides support for the effectiveness of Internet CBT in a psychiatric setting for patients with panic disorder, and suggests that it is equally effective as the more widely used group administered CBT in reducing panic-and agoraphobic symptoms, as well as being more cost effective with respect to therapist time
