  Purpose
The primary aims of this project are to examine the feasibility and relative efficacy of two models of on-line intervention for families of children with traumatic brain injury: one, a model emphasizing cognitive appraisals and problem solving skills; the other, emphasizing linking families to resources and providing professionally-moderated peer support.

Condition Intervention
Traumatic Brain Injury Depression Anxiety Disorders Behavioral: Case management and problem solving therapy

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Factorial Assignment
Masking: Double
Official Title: A Trial of Two On-Line Interventions for Child Brain Injury

Further study details as provided by University of Pittsburgh:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Previous investigations using problem solving therapy have documented large effect sizes on measures of problem solving and depression.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Similarly, the single previous controlled intervention following pediatric traumatic brain injury (TBI) demonstrated a large effect on self-report measures of depression and anxiety.

Estimated Enrollment: 120
Study Start Date: February 2005
Study Completion Date: September 2006
Detailed Description:
The feasibility of the two interventions will be evaluated by examining family utilization of on-line materials and satisfaction with receiving services this way. Previous studies suggest the longer-term effects of TBI often create significant stress for both child and family and the need for psychological services.
