Abstract [en]

Negative effects of treatments delivered online constitute an important but unexplored area of research. In the current study, data collected from a smartphone-based treatment for social anxiety disorder (total N =189) was assessed in order to determine the influence of negative effects on treatment outcome. A new self-report measure for reporting negative effects was developed, and the scores were correlated with the change from pre- to post-treatment assessment on the Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale. The results indicate that the number of incidents, r = .175, and the degree to which the patient was affected by the negative effects, r = .192, were related to less change in symptom severity. In terms of the most recurring types of negative effects, patients reported that they had a bad conscience about not conducting their assignments (Item 16), being stressed by the treatment schedule (Item 2), and feeling left out during treatment (Item 55).
