The treatment is self-paced, which means you can carry out the treatment in a flexible way, at your convenience, at any time of the day. Your participation is completely anonymous.
More about the treatment program
The treatment program is offered within the framework of two ongoing research projects funded by the European Union and the Oak Foundation (for more details see Project page). We are now evaluating the second version of Prevent It in a randomized, waitlist controlled trial. The first version of Prevent It has been scientifically evaluated and proved to be effective, safe, and well-appreciated by participants (see results and quotes from previous participants). After the first clinical trial, we have revised the manual, considering clinical experience, patient feedback, and the statistical analyses of the patient data.
Recruitment for Prevent It is ongoing from November 2022 until June 2024. The treatment program is available in English, Swedish, German, and Portuguese.
The study has been approved by the Swedish Ethical Review Authority (Dnr 2022-03938-01) and it is conducted in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki for research ethics.
