Secured Internet-mediated Psychotherapy With Psychiatry Patients
Secured Internet-mediated Psychotherapy With Psychiatry Patients. Software Improvement, Clinical Trials and Development of Clinical Precautions

This is the second phase (Phase B) of the main project "Bank for Thoughts", which has the following aims:

  1. Improvement of software for secured (encrypted and access-controlled) asynchronous text-based communication within health services. (Adjustments for use in psychiatry.)
  2. Open clinical trials with Internet-mediated psychotherapy or counselling in out-patient child and adolescent psychiatry.
  3. Development of indications and precautions for text-based Internet-mediated psychotherapy.

This phase (Phase B) concentrates on qualitative evaluation of open clinical single case trials using asynchronous Internet-mediated text-dialogue for psychotherapeutic purposes.

Single patients in differing treatment phases, conditions, age and sex categories are interviewed after using Internet-contact as a supplementary tool in psychotherapy. Their therapists are interviewed as well.

The purpose is systematically gathering single-case experiences with the tool, to build a hypothesis for research and preliminary guidelines for experimental clinical use of Internet-mediated psychotherapy.
