Internet-based psychodynamic therapy versus cognitive behaviour therapy for adolescents with depression: study protocol for a non-inferiority randomised controlled trial (the ERiCA study)Download the open access paper
In order to broaden the range of evidence-based treatments for young people, we evaluated a newly developed affect-focused internet-based psychodynamic treatment (IPDT) in a previous study with promising results. The purpose of the planned study is to evaluate the efficacy of IPDT for adolescent depression in a non-inferiority trial, comparing it to internet-based cognitive behavioural therapy.
