Abstract (Swedish)
Syftet med denna pilotstudie var att undersöka möjligheten att behandla patienter med social fobi inom psykiatrin med en guidad internetbaserad självhjälpsbehandling. Författarna undersökte även hur självhjälps- behandlingen upplevdes av patienterna. Fem deltagare rekryterades till studien där en så kallad case series-design tillämpades. För att utvärdera behandlingen och dess effektivitet användes en analysmetod kallad Jacobson-Truax. Denna metod syftar till att mäta klinisk signifikans och valdes delvis på grund av det låga deltagarantalet, men också på grund av bristen på studier som undersöker denna typ av signifikans inom aktuellt forskningsområde. Resultaten från studien ger vissa indikationer på att patienter med social fobi kan dra... (More)

Resultaten från studien ger vissa indikationer på att patienter med social fobi kan dra nytta av aktuell behandling, fyra av fem deltagare förändrades i positiv riktning. Resultaten från föreliggande studie kan indikera trender. För att kunna dra vidare slutsatser kring huruvida aktuellt behandlingsprogram är effektivt för patienter med social fobi inom psykiatrin, bör emellertid fler studier, med ett större urval genomföras.

Abstract
The purpose of this pilot study was to examine the possibility of treating patients within a psychiatric setting with an internet-based guided self-help treatment. The authors also looked into how the self-help treatment was evaluated by the patients. Five participants were recruited to the study and a so-called case series was employed as design. To evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment a method called Jacobson-Truax was used. This method aims to measure clinical significance and was partly utilized because of the small number of participants in the study, but also because of the absence of studies examining this type of significance in the research field of today. The results from this study showed that there are some indications... (More)

This method aims to measure clinical significance and was partly utilized because of the small number of participants in the study, but also because of the absence of studies examining this type of significance in the research field of today. The results from this study showed that there are some indications that patients with social phobia can benefit from the current treatment. Four out of five patients showed improvements after the treatment. The results in the current study can indicate trends. However, to gain further proof about whether the current treatment program is effective for patients with social phobia within a psychiatric setting, more studies, with a larger sample is needed.
