Fokus på kognitiva faktorer i behandling av social fobi med internet-baserat självhjälpsprogram (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Social Phobia and fear of public speaking has shown to be present among university students. According to the model by Clark and Wells (1995) cognitive factors such as catastrophizing thoughts and self-focus are required to decrease in order for a decrease in social anxiety to follow. The aim was to investigate this by adopting a replicated single-case design, along with four measurement occasions weekly. An Internet delivered self-help CBT program was offered to two participants during eight weeks. The results partly support the model, with cognitive factors decreasing simultaneously as social anxiety and not prior. This pilot study can be built upon in future group studies where more observations can be carried out to investigate how the effects follow. 

Abstract [sv]

Social ångest och rädsla att tala inför grupp har visat sig förekomma hos universitetsstudenter. Enligt Clark och Wells modell (1995) så behöver kognitiva faktorer såsom katastroftankar och själv-fokusering minska för att social ångest ska kunna minska. Syfte var att undersöka detta med en Single-Case multipel baslinje design, tillsammans med fyra mättillfällen i veckan. Ett KBT baserat självhjälpsprogram via Internet erbjöds till två deltagare under en åtta veckors period. Modellen var delvis bekräftad då kognitiva faktorer minskade samtidigt som den sociala ångesten men däremot inte innan. Pilotstudien kan vägleda framtida gruppstudier i användningen av ytterligare detaljerade observationer för att undersöka hur effekterna följer varandra.
