Abstract [sv]

Fysisk aktivitet och beteendeaktivering har i tidigare forskning påvisats vara effektiv i behandling av depressionstillstånd. Syftet med ACTUA-studien var att utvärdera ett internetbaserat självhjälpsprogram med terapeutstöd via e-post. Totalt deltog 71 individer med egentlig depression som randomiserades till fyra olika behandlingsgrupper, två som ägnade sig åt fysisk aktivitet (FA), två som ägnade sig åt beteendeaktivering (BA) samt en väntelista. Behandlingsprogrammet bestod av åtta moduler som tilldelades deltagaren under en 12 veckor lång behandlingsperiod. Sudden gains, vilket är en företeelse som allmänt anses påverka det slutgiltiga behandlingsresultatet för en individ positivt, kunde påvisas i 47 (66%) deltagares behandlingsprocess. Något samband mellan förekomst av sudden gains och total förbättring under behandlingen kunde inte påvisas i denna studie och det fanns heller inget samband mellan förekomst av sudden gains och typ av behandling.

Abstract [en]

Physical activity and behavioral activation has been shown in previous research to be effective in the treatment of depressive disorders. The purpose of ACTUA was to evaluate an Internet-based self-help program with therapist support via e-mail. A total of 71 individuals with major depressive disorder were randomized into four treatment groups, two of which contained physical activity (FA), two others comprised of behavioral activation (BA) and one waiting list. The treatment program consisted of eight modules and they were distributed to participants during a 12 week treatment period. Sudden gains, which is a phenomenon that is generally considered to influence the final outcome of treatment for an individual in a positive way was detected in 47 (66%) participants treatment process. A correlation between the occurrence of sudden gains and overall improvement during treatment could not be demonstrated in this study and there was no association between the occurrence of sudden gains and type of treatment.
