This study examined whether and when specific interventions (as part of a new cognitive therapy for compulsive checking) addressing these cognitive targets changed feelings of responsibility and memory confidence. Methods Participants were nine...

Traditional approaches to psychotherapy emphasise face-to-face contact between patients and therapists. In contrast, current computerised approaches tend to minimise this contact. This can limit the range of mental health difficulties for which computerised approaches are effective. Here, we explore an alternative approach that integrates face-to-face contact, electronic contact, online collaboration, and support for between-session activities. Our discussion is grounded in the design of a platf...

However, few qualitative investigations have been conducted on the experiences of clients undergoing such treatments. METHOD: In the current study, clients completing 12-week guided ICBT for perfectionism responded to open-ended qu...

METHOD: A distillation and matching model-framework approach was taken to identify interventions...
