    Guided internet cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia after the loss of a child: randomized controlled trial2019In: 6th World Congress of the EAPC in Berlin / [ed] SAGE, 2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Disturbed sleep is a common problem in bereaved individuals (Buckley et al., 2012).

    Aims: The aim was to evaluate satisfaction with and effects of internet-delivered cognitive behavior therapy (ICBT) treatment for insomnia in parents up to 5 years after the loss of a child to cancer.

    Methods: Participants were 21 bereaved parents with insomnia. The parents were randomized to an intervention or a control group. The intervention was a 9-week ICBT for insomnia. The control group received a short booklet with psychoeducation on sleep via the internet. Primary outcome was symptom of insomnia and secondary outcomes were prolonged grief, depression, posttraumatic stress, grief rumination, assessed pre- and post-intervention with follow-up after 9 and 18 months. Satisfaction with treatment was assessed at post-intervention (n=7) and by telephone one month after (n=6) the intervention.

    Results: The intervention group improved from pre- to post-intervention with regard to symptoms of insomnia (Cohens d=1.56), however there was no significant difference between the two groups at post-measure (d=0.11) due to a large reduction also in the control group (d=1.12). At the 9 months follow-up there was a significant difference between the two groups in symptoms of insomnia (d=1.54) as well as the secondary measures (d=0.62-1.54). Of six individuals who responded by telephone, no one had experienced any negative consequences of the treatment. Some parents thought it was time-consuming. One person reported being quite dissatisfied with the treatment, although the majority of participants reported being very satisfied.

    Conclusion: The preliminary results, due to small sample size, indicate that the internet-delivered treatment with CBT had a positive effect on reducing insomnia as well as psychological distress in bereaved parents, short-term and long-term.

    Hyresmarknadens bortglömda konfliktrepertoarer2019In: Mot ljuset: En antologi om arbete, arbetare och arbetarrörelse / [ed] Johan A. Lundin & Emma Hilborn, Landskrona: Centrum för arbetarhistoria , 2019, p. 86-103Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den historiska bilden av arbetarrörelsen har länge varit en bild där framför allt rörelsens politiska och fackliga organisationer har lyfts fram. Utöver detta har andra delar, såsom folkbildningen, med rätta tillskrivits en viktig betydelse för arbetarrörelsens utveckling. Ett exempel på en del av rörelsen som har fått relativt lite uppmärksamhet är hyresgäströrelsen. Att hyresgästernas organisationer har uppmärksammats så pass lite som har varit fallet är intressant. Detta gäller inte minst då den svenska hyresgäströrelsen sedan andra halvan av 1900-talet, internationellt sett har varit anmärkningsvärt stark och inflytelserik och haft en mycket hög anslutningsgrad. Det unika svenska systemet med kollektivförhandlade hyror är bara ett uttryck för rörelsens historiska styrka. Denna styrka var dock inte given utan fick i mångt och mycket erövras i konfrontation med motparten, fastighetsägarna. I denna text undersöks kortfattat några av formerna som dessa konfrontationer tog.

    A pilot study of user satisfaction and perceived helpfulness of the Swedish version of the mobile app PTSD Coach.2018In: European Journal of Psychotraumatology, ISSN 2000-8066, E-ISSN 2000-8066, Vol. 9, no Suppl 1, article id 1472990Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: There is a need for accessible interventions in the aftermath of traumatic events with documented efficacy for preventing or reducing negative mental health consequences. The PTSD Coach is a mobile app that has shown to be effective in reducing symptoms of posttraumatic stress (PTSS).

    Objective: The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the user satisfaction, perceived helpfulness and potential reductions of PTSS and symptoms of depression among participants using the Swedish version of the PTSD Coach.

    Method: This was an uncontrolled pre-test post-test open trial including participants recruited from the community via advertisement and from an ongoing observational study who had experienced a potentially traumatic event in the last five years. Participants had access to the Swedish PTSD Coach app for four weeks.

    Results: Eleven participants (mean age = 38.6, female = 8) completed the study. Nine of the participants met criteria for full or partial PTSD. Results from the PTSD Coach Survey indicated that participants found the app slightly to moderately helpful and were slightly to moderately satisfied with the app. Nominal but not statistically significant reductions of medium effect sizes in PTSS (PCL-5) and depression (PHQ-9) from pre- to post-assessment were found. In interviews, participants indicated that they found elements such as learning about PTSD, breathing exercises and monitoring symptoms helpful in managing symptoms. However, several participants indicated that they had not used the app as much as they had intended to. Participants also had suggestions for improvements such as enhanced app structure and better guidance regarding how to use the app.

    Conclusions: The perceived helpfulness and user satisfaction were slightly lower compared to research on the original version of the app. Experiences from the study are discussed and a future controlled study of the Swedish version of the PTSD Coach is suggested.
