Beskrivning av projektet
How can we effectively promote adolescents’ mental health? This proposal will a) apply artificial intelligence to obtain novel understanding of what kind of adolescents benefit from technology-based psychological interventions (iACT, b) carry out randomized control trial (n=240) to investigate effectiveness of individually tailored iACT including comparing efficacy of iACT with iCoach providing automated personal support and iACT with both iCoach and HumanCoach providing personal support and c) investigate whether the effectiveness of the individually tailored iACT varies according to different individual and contextual factors. The results have high potential to provide a novel and effective way to provide individualized support for a large group of adolescents and develop theory and practice of psychotherapy towards a unified therapeutic model that is effective for all the mental health problems.
