Symposium 125 - Technology-Based Interventions to Increase Access to Evidence-Based Treatments for Internalizing Disorders

Sunday, November 19
8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: Sapphire Ballroom E & F, Level 4, Sapphire Level

Keywords: Technology / Mobile Health | Treatment Development | Evidence-Based Practice
Presentation Type: Symposium

Despite rapid expansion over recent decades in the number of available evidence-based psychological treatments for internalizing symptomatology, only a small fraction of those in need receive effective, evidenced-based treatments (EBTs; Kazdin & Blase, 2011). The current symposium includes five presentations showcasing research utilizing various technological platforms to expand the reach of EBTs for internalizing disorders across diverse populations and settings. Presenters will each discuss: 1) intervention development, 2) efficacy, 3) feasibility, and 4) important factors to consider when developing evidence-based technological interventions (e.g., platform selection, population, setting).


First, Dr. Tomasino and Dr. Lattie will present the results of two pilot studies testing an online platform adapted to incorporate peer support that aims to treat depression in older adults and to prevent depression and substance abuse in at-risk adolescents. Second, Dr. Dahne will discuss a self-help adaptation of Brief Behavioral Activation Treatment for Depression (BATD) and results from a pilot RCT testing the intervention with adults in primary care. Third, Dr. Reyes-Portillo will present research using an EMR alert to increase physician adherence to suicide safety planning for at-risk Latino adolescents treated via outpatient psychiatry. Fourth, Dr. Duffecy will present data from a pilot study targeting medical students aiming to promote physician self-care (i.e., utilization of cognitive and behavioral coping skills) through an online mental health intervention. Fifth, Dr. Davidson will present research evaluating a tablet-based application to improve effectiveness of trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) in community mental health through improving patient engagement and clinician fidelity to treatment. 


To conclude, our discussant, Dr. Schueller, will unite the five presentations by discussing the theme of utilizing various technological platforms to extend the reach and effectiveness of EBTs for internalizing symptoms to a broad range of settings and populations and will discuss possible future directions for this body of work.
