1. Prinz, Karoline. The Development of an Online Psycho-Education and Cognitive-Behavioural Intervention Program ‘Step Up’ for Young People to Combat Cyberbullying .

Degree: 2018, University of Sydney

The overall study aim was to develop and evaluate an intervention that seeks to help young people deal with cyberbullying. An online intervention (Step Up) was created based on an existing school-based program with proven efficacy. The first study describes the development of Step Up as well as a trial that assessed the feasibility and acceptability. This study gathered qualitative feedback about the young people’s experience of the program, and assessed the practicality of the assessment battery. A short form of the PECK (Personal Experiences Checklist) a measure assessing a young person’s experience of being bullied was constructed using item response theory, and its structure confirmed with confirmatory factor analysis. Feedback from the feasibility study was used to refine the intervention and make it was highly user-friendly. A wait-list randomised controlled trial was planned and commenced, but then abandoned due to a lack of school recruitment. Instead, a single group pre-post-follow-up design was implemented as a pilot study to test the efficacy of Step Up. It was hypothesized that people who completed the program would report: less experience with cyberbullying; less emotional problems; and positive changes in self-compassion. Sixty-eight young people completed the pilot study, including a short-term follow-up assessment. The results show largely positive changes on the measures, but the conclusions are limited by the lack of a control group. In conclusion, preliminary evidence is provided to support the effectiveness of an online intervention targeting cyberbullying in reducing reported bullying and emotional symptoms, and increasing self-compassion. The current study provides a foundation for an initial contribution to the range of anti-bullying interventions required to make the online world a safer place.

2. Ni, Yiqi. A Mixed-Methods Approach to Exploring Engagement in MoodTech: An Online CBT Intervention for Older Adults with Depression.

Degree: 2018, University of Washington

In recent years, online cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) interventions have played an increasing role in treating late-life depression. Previous studies have reported that online CBT interventions can be effective in treating depression and promoting behavioral changes among older participants. However, inadequate engagement could potentially weaken their effectiveness, and the motivations and barriers to participation among older participants in these interventions are less well known. This study aimed to obtain deeper understandings of older participants’ engagement patterns and subjective experiences of MoodTech, an online CBT intervention tailored for older adults with depression. I employed three different methods to analyze diverse forms of data produced during the intervention. There were three aims. First, I characterized the engagement of participants through visual analysis of log data. I visualized the frequencies of their online activities and skills practices, then identified patterns in each measure of engagement. A meta-pattern graph was created to facilitate identification of groups of individuals who shared similar patterns across engagement measures. Second, I conducted a network analysis of the participants who had access to the peer interaction features and compared engagement behaviors in three kinds of peer interaction networks (comments, likes and nudges). Third, I performed a qualitative analysis of the textual data, including messages, posts, comments and thought records of the participants. Using a qualitative analytic method based on Grounded Theory, I examined the application of CBT and how participants responded to CBT and engaged with the intervention. I also explored potential explanations for the observed behaviors in individual and network engagement patterns. With regard to the results, for the first aim, I observed great diversity, but also similarities, in patterns of engagement among participants. For the second aim, I found that the networks of nudges were less dense than the comments and likes networks and there were fewer people involved, which may show that older people attached importance to the actual contents of interactions. Last, I found evidence from the qualitative analysis that many participants learned CBT strategies and practiced them to understand why they were having sustained feelings of depression and low productivity. Some even successfully broke harmful cognitive or behavioral patterns. But other older adults encountered obstacles due to shortcomings in the website design or were reluctant to practice the CBT strategies because of previous unsuccessful experiences with CBT. Overall, engagement behaviors of older adults in online CBT interventions are hard to predict, but can potentially be influenced by technology use habits, contents of social interactions, and previous psychotherapy experiences. Future intervention design may take these findings into consideration and adjust lesson contents for different subgroups of participants, as well as improve the… Advisors/Committee Members: Chen, Annie T (advisor).
