Qualification Project

Effects of computer-assisted psychotherapy for therapists as addressees

The prevalence of anxiety in Germany contrasts with the number of free therapy places available. Many people with anxiety disorders experience long waiting times for a therapy place. Sometimes therapy is not even started because of this. Computer-assisted treatments, which can be used (partly) without the presence of a psychotherapist, make it possible to harness therapy at home. This could reduce and bridge waiting times and relieve therapists.
Previous studies mostly focused exclusively on the effect of therapy on patients. This research project focuses on the perspectives of therapists as addressees of computer-assisted psychotherapy. Data will be collected via a mixed-methods design. This enables the collection of (non-)intended (side-)effects from the therapists’ perspective by means of qualitative methods, which are related to quantitatively determined intended effects on the patients.
