2015 (English)In: Abstracts from the 7th Swedish Congress on internet interventions (SWEsrii), Linköping: Linköping University Press , 2015, 25-25 p.Conference paper, Abstract (Other academic)
Problem gambling is a public health concern with prevalence rates at 2 %. Problem gambling also severely affect concerned significant others (CSOs). Several studies have investigated the effect of individual treatments based on cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), but there is a shortage in studies on the effect of involving CSOs in treatment. This study aims to compare an intervention based on behavioral couples therapy (BCT) involving a CSO with an individual CBT treatment to determine their relative efficacy. BCT has shown promising results in working with substance abuse, but this is the first time it is used as an intervention for problem gambling. Both interventions will be Internet-delivered and participants will receive e-mail and telephone support. This presentation will focus on the preliminary results from our pilot study as well as our study protocol for our RCT study.
