Abstract [sv]

Depression är en av vår tids vanligaste folksjukdomar, trots det söker bara hälften av alla drabbade vård. Ett sätt att nå ut till fler är genom internetbaserade behandlingsmetoder. Syftet med föreliggande studie var att undersöka effekten av fyra behandlarunderstödda internetadministrerade behandlingar vid mild till måttlig depression. Två av behandlingarna bygger på fysisk aktivitet och två på beteendeaktivering. Inom varje betingelse har rationalen manipulerats. Därtill används en kontrollgrupp. 312 deltagare randomiserades till de fem grupperna. Resultaten visar att samtliga behandlingar leder till minskade depressionssymtom, däremot gick det inte att påvisa några signifikanta mellangruppsskillnader. Samtliga grupper uppvisar en ökad fysik aktivitet och det gick att påvisa en signifikant mellangruppsskillnad då de grupper som inte fått någon rational ökat sin fysiska aktivitet signifikant mer än kontrollgruppen. En trolig anledning till att inga mellangruppsskillnader gällande depressionssymtom gick att identifiera är att även kontrollgruppen minskat sina symtom avsevärt. 

Abstract [en]

 

Depression is one of the most widespread diseases of our time, but only fifty percent of the diseased seeks out for help. One way to reach out to more people is by offering internet based treatment methods. The purpose of this study is to investigate four therapist supported internet administrated treatments for mild to moderate depression. Two of the treatments are based on physical activity and two on behavioural activation. The treatment rationale in each condition has been manipulated. A control group has been used. 312 participants were randomized to the five groups. The results show that all the treatments leads to decreased symptoms of depression, but no in between group differences were found. All groups showed an increase of physical activity and there was a between group difference between the groups without rationale and the control group. The groups without rationale had increased their physical activity more than the control group. One possible explanation to the lack of between group differences on symptoms of depression is the fact that the control group also decreased their symptoms substantially.
