Session 1A: Symposium: Interactive Technology-Driven Interventions for Smoking Cessation: An Interdisciplinary Approach
Background: Cigarette smoking, the most common form of nicotine use, is the single most preventable cause of death in the world and continues to be a serious problem. Beyond intervention effectiveness, reach and retention are major challenges of smoking cessation interventions. Internet and mobile phone technologies have the potential to deliver individualized and continuous smoking cessation support to large proportions of the population that may easily be accessed, independent of time and place.

Purpose: Within the symposium the following recent technological developments and results concerning technology-driven interactive programs for smoking cessation will be presented by psychologists and computer scientists:

1. The results of a randomized controlled trial testing the efficacy of the fully-automatic text-message based program SMS-COACH for smoking cessation in vocational school students.

2. The aims and architecture of the MOBILE-COACH, a modular and extendable open-source software that allows creating and evaluating fully-automatic mobile-based intervention programs for changing various health behaviors and that will be used for the development of a revised version of the SMS-COACH.

3. The aims and intitial results of the Internet program YOUTURN for smoking cessation in occupational Settings, which offers social support and the opportunity to gain real money in case of long-term smoking abstinence.

Within the subsequent discussion we will address, among other things, the necessity of a close collaboration of computer and health scientists in order to establish stable and extendable programs for health promotion.

Session 2A: Occupational E-Mental Health – A Life-Domain Specific Perspective to Foster Health and Well-Being in Stressed Employees (Part 1)
Internet interventions have proven to be effective in clinical samples, e.g., with regard to the treatment of depression, anxiety or sleep. Online trainings were also found to be effective in changing negative health behaviors, such as reduction of alcohol consumption; however, yielded mixed results for smoking cessation. While most internet-based interventions focus on specific diagnoses such as affective disorders, only few interventions were developed to address the specific needs of people in certain life-domains. The working life domain is of particular importance not only with regard to making a living but also with regard to health. There is growing evidence of work stress affecting a wide range of (mental) health outcomes. Moreover adverse health also affects work outcomes such as productivity.

A life-domain specific perspective aims at tailoring Internet interventions to the problems and needs that people face in a certain life-domain such as the working life-domain. So far, the evidence from high-quality randomized controlled trials for the effectiveness of Occupational E-Mental Health interventions is far weaker than evidence for the effectiveness of Internet-based psychotherapy.

This symposium on Occupational E-Mental Health addresses Internet interventions for employees experiencing stress at the workplace. The symposium will comprise four presentations on interventions aiming to reduce stress and related health problems (15 minutes each). There will be 5 minutes time for short questions and answers. The focus will be on efficacy. Besides presenting the results, presenters will also give an inside on how the interventions were tailored to the specific occupational settings. In a 10 minutes general discussion generic topics will be addressed that might be of importance to the further development of Occupational E-Mental Health. There will be room to share experiences in designing interventions and conducting studies in occupational settings.

The symposium will be chaired by Dirk Lehr and David Ebert.

Session 3A: A Panel Discussion on Dissemination and Commercialization of eHealth/Internet Interventions

Few would argue that there is compelling evidence for the feasibility and efficacy of Internet interventions generally.  Studies continue to be conducted further establishing the science of eHealth programs in a growing number of areas, populations, and intervention types.  Deconstruction studies are now being conducted to understand the active ingredients of these programs allowing for greater refinement and even better outcomes.  However, a major problem has emerged – how to make empirically validated interventions available once the research funding ends.  Dissemination of effective eHealth programs is the next major undertaking in the field.  Without dissemination, the research that has been conducted is meaningless.  But moving interventions into the ‘real world’ is not straight-forward and there are enormous hurdles to overcome in doing so.  These hurdles vary given a number of issues including the type of intervention, diverse laws and differing levels of government involvement and support across countries, and people’s willingness and interest of adoption.  One particularly sensitive topic that many researchers and academics have struggled with is the idea of commercialization.  Attitudes surrounding this issue appear to be shifting with a greater appreciation and, perhaps, acceptance that this may be one of the more viable paths for disseminating.  However, with commercialization, additional concerns emerge which must be addressed, including issues of ethics, data integrity, biases, and conflicts of interest.he type of intervention, different laws in different countries, government in

This panel will focus on many of the key issues in disseminating Internet interventions, particularly through commercialization.  The panelists for this session have all been working to disseminate eHealth programs and will share many of their lessons learned.  There will also be an opportunity for questions from the audience to be raised and discussed.  Panelists include Mark Willems, CEO of minddistrict (www.mindistrict.com); George Reynolds, President and CEO of Health Decision Technologies (www.healthdecisiontechnologies.com); and Simon Wilson, Clinical Director at Big White Wall (www.bigwhitewall.com).  The session will be chaired by Lee Ritterband, Professor at University of Virginia and co-founder of BeHealth Solutions (www.behealthsolutions.com).

Session 4B: User Driven and Empowered: The Development and Evaluation of User-Focused, Innovative Approaches to Improving the Mental Health of Adolescents and Young Adults
This symposium will showcase findings from several projects focused on the development and evaluation of innovative technology-based services for improving the mental health of adolescents and young adults. These projects are part of collective work by the Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre to explore the role of technology in young people’s lives, and to determine how these technologies can be used to improve the mental health and wellbeing of those aged 12 to 25. The Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre is an Australia-based, international research centre that unites young people with researchers, practitioners and policy makers from over 75 partner organisations across the non-profit, academic, government and corporate sectors.

The five papers presented in this symposium are based on projects that are currently in different stages of development and evaluation. One paper focuses on the development and design of a randomised controlled trial to assess the effectiveness of a mobile phone app for promoting healthy sleep/wake cycles in young males. One paper presents preliminary pilot trial data on the effectiveness of an online help seeking service designed to connect young people with the right information, tools and services at the right time. Three papers relate to the development of a comprehensive virtual clinic for university students. One paper presents the results of a systematic review of the effectiveness of peer-to-peer support in improving the mental health of adolescents and young adults, with a view to informing peer support tools in the virtual clinic. One paper presents the results of a survey of university teaching staff to assess their attitudes toward recommending online resources to students. One paper examines privacy and trust issues identified by young adults as they apply to the development of the virtual clinic.

Session 5A: Moving From Ecological Momentary Assessment to Ecological Momentary Interventions: Data Mining Methods in eMental Health Research.
Modern internet-based health interventions generate a wealth of real-time user-data that carry the promise to enable the development of personalized interventions that are highly responsive to in-the-moment patient needs. Log file analysis and Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) have proven to be a viable approach to tap the behavioural, emotional and social dynamics of mental health. The development of Ecological Momentary Interventions (EMI), treatments that automatically adapt on the basis of real-time user data, appears to be a logical next step. EMI, however, is still in its infancy. We have only begun to understand how to turn large and often ’messy’ datasets into clinically relevant predictive models. What is clear though, is that EMI-development requires the adoption of data mining methods that go way beyond the traditional statistical toolbox of the clinical researcher. In this 100-minute symposium, participants will learn the strengths and weaknesses of a variety of such analytical methods, through five presentations of several explorative EMA/EMI and „big data” research projects, followed by an expert comment and a plenary discussion.

Heleen Riper (VUA) introduces the theme of the symposium by providing a position statement on the need for EMI and by presenting the results of the EU ICT4Depression project, in which a team of experts from Clinical Psychology and Artificial Intelligence aimed to develop a platform for EMI research. Next, Joost Asselbergs and Jeroen Ruwaard (VUA) present results of an explorative study assessing the feasibility of smartphone-based unobtrusive EMA in predicting mood fluctuations. Third, Mark Hoogendoorn (VUA) introduces an adaptive predictive modelling framework that allows for automated clinical reasoning by combining formalized domain knowledge with individual patient data. Fourth, Johannes Smit (VUMC), reports on the use of ‘big data’ - including EMA - in mental health treatments. Fifth, Burkhardt Funk (LU) will show how eMental Health researchers can make their EMI more robust by adopting common data mining methods from the field of Artificial Intelligence. Finally, discussant David Mohr (NW-CBITS) will reflect on the presented projects, to boot up an interactive discussion with the audience.

Session 6A: Implementation and Upscaling of Low Intensity eMental-Health Interventions
Internet Interventions, especially those based on cognitive behavioural therapy, have proven to be (cost) effective for mild to severe common mental disorders. Proof of concept studies show the potential clinical effectiveness of these interventions for the more complex disorders as well. The (cost) effectiveness of these interventions relates mainly to comparators of non-intervening and much less to face-to-face psychological interventions. Overall the results obtained by ample studies warrant the up-scaling of these interventions in routine practice. The reach, implementation and uptake of eMental-health interventions by patients and professionals in routine mental health care practice, however, is lower than expected given the available evidence. Several reasons may explain not only the limited reach but uptake as well. We mention the four most prominent barriers.

1. First, the evidence available has been mainly derived from randomized controlled trials that recruit study participants directly in the community and less from routine primary and specialised mental health services directly. This means that many of the online services on offer are not embedded in routine care thereby lacking both uptake and maintenance from within routine mental health care and health insurance systems.

2. Second, the reach of Internet interventions differs between low intensity interventions with no professional human guidance and those with this type of guidance. Whereas unguided public health interventions do have a high reach, their clinical impact is rather low and uptake by participants is characterised by a high intervention drop-out. On the contrary, guided interventions do have a higher impact compared to non-guided interventions but their reach and uptake is yet rather low.

3. Third, the evidence of Internet interventions in routine mental care services based on ‘blended’ treatments that combine face to face with Internet intervention, needs to be strengthened. The implementation in routine practice is rather low as well.

4. Fourth, scientific insights of health technology implementation sciences are rather slowly entering the academic domain of eMental-health research in routine practice.

In sum, the implementation of evidence based Internet interventions in routine practice faces multi-faceted challenges. In this symposium we focus on the barriers and success strategies of the implementation of Internet interventions from this multifaceted angle in terms of disorders, recruitment strategies, settings and scale (national and international).

Session 6B: Occupational E-Mental Health – A Life-Domain Specific Perspective to Foster Health and Well-Being in Stressed Employees (Part 2)
Internet interventions have proven to be effective in clinical samples, e.g., with regard to the treatment of depression, anxiety or sleep. Online trainings were also found to be effective in changing negative health behaviors, such as reduction of alcohol consumption; however, yielded mixed results for smoking cessation. While most internet-based interventions focus on specific diagnoses such as affective disorders, only few interventions were developed to address the specific needs of people in certain life-domains. The working life domain is of particular importance not only with regard to making a living but also with regard to health. There is growing evidence of work stress affecting a wide range of (mental) health outcomes. Moreover adverse health also affects work outcomes such as productivity.

A life-domain specific perspective aims at tailoring Internet interventions to the problems and needs that people face in a certain life-domain such as the working life-domain. So far, the evidence from high-quality randomized controlled trials for the effectiveness of Occupational E-Mental Health interventions is far weaker than evidence for the effectiveness of Internet-based psychotherapy.

The symposium will comprise four presentations. The studies presented will focus on adherence to Occupational E-Mental Health interventions, moderators of change, the importance of guidance and the potential of Occupational E-Mental Health interventions to save costs with regard to absenteeism and presenteeism (15 minutes each). There will be 5 minutes time for short questions and answers. In a 10 minutes general discussion generic topics will be addressed that might be of importance to the further development of Occupational E-Mental Health such as improving adherence, acceptance and optimizing recruitment and implementation strategies.

The symposium will be chaired by David Ebert and Dirk Lehr.

Session 7A: Virtual Reality and mHealth Technologies in Clinical and Health Psychology
The potential and utility of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for psychological treatments been demonstrated in at least the following technological areas: computer-assisted therapy, Virtual Reality (VR) techniques, and using the Internet as treatment support mechanism (Botella et al., 2012). Also, the adoption and use of mobile technologies is growing exponentially. This symposium will present and discuss examples pertaining to two of these areas: VR and mHealth.

Gregg and Tarrier (2007) reviewed the literature on the use of VR in the field of mental health from 1985 to 2006, identifying more than 50 studies referred to VR-based treatments with at least one patient. Seventeen of these studies compared the effectiveness of VR treatment with in vivo exposure, another treatment, or a no treatment control. It was found that although, in general, VR-based therapy proves to be superior to no treatment, it has not yet been shown to be more effective than most often used therapeutic approaches, such as in vivo cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Other reviews have shown more optimism about the advantages of VR-based therapy in the context of several psychopathologies, especially anxiety disorders. In general, these reviews suggest that VR-based interventions are at least as effective as those based on in vivo CBT. Nevertheless, VR has important advantages over traditional interventions because of its higher ecological validity and the higher control of the parameters of the exposure.

While enthusiasm for mHealth interventions is high, little is known yet about their efficacy or effectiveness. Most randomized trials of mHealth interventions have employed text message reminder systems. Some systematic reviews have described evidence for the use of text message reminders to improve attendance at health care appointments and medication adherence for people with chronic illnesses. Clinical trials that measure clinical outcomes are essential in this area.

Session 7B: Serious Gaming & interactivity in interventions for Child and Adolescent Mental Health
Serious Gaming and Interactivity in Interventions for Child and Youth Mental Health
Convened by Dr Theresa Fleming & Professor Bruce Arroll

This symposium will provide an overview of serious gaming & interactivity in internet interventions to promote mental health among children and young people. We begin with an overview of the literature and then shift to analyses of serious gaming components included in leading contemporary tested or in-development projects in Australia, New Zealand and the USA. We shift to consider a game centred approach, where psychotherapeutic components of a commercially available and widely used game are being evaluated. Finally we will close with a panel discussion of future directions and opportunities for serious gaming in interventions for child and youth mental health.

Session 8C: ISRII Throwdown!
Participants who signed up for the ISRII Throwdown! during registration will be placed in small groups to work together to conceptualize and storyboard a new eHealth intervention application. The winning group will be crowned ISRII Throwdown! Champions during the Closing Awards Session.
  • Each participant is placed in a multidisciplinary group of ISRII meeting attendees. Participants include researchers, psychologists, clinicians, designers, developers, statisticians, entrepreneurs, and more. We will have an exceptionally rich group of participants and every  attempt will be made to establish teams with a good mix of skill sets.
  • In addition to having fun and meeting new people, the aim of each team is to come up with the best eHealth intervention for the chosen disorder. 
  • As a team, you need to decide what type of technology approach you think best for creating an intervention for this disorder. It might incorporate the use of the web, mobile, sensors, VR, or any other emerging technology you determine best. It might also be one or some of the following: self-help, group focused, human supported, automated, tailored, and based on a CBT, mindfulness, dynamic, or whatever orientation you all believe would be best.
  • Your team should then work together to determine how best to present your eHealth intervention and will have 3 minutes during the Throwdown session to present your ideas. The audience will vote on a winner!
  • Your team may present it in any way you choose, whether this be via a PowerPoint presentation, poster, intervention mockup, website, video, skit – you name it! But not a moment over 180 seconds!

Session 9A: The Role of Internet Interventions in Reducing Self-Stigma and Addressing Stigma Concerns
In this symposium the potential of internet-based interventions for addressing stigma concerns and reducing internalised stigma in persons with mental and physical health difficulties will be examined. Internet-based interventions may make treatment more accessible for persons who would otherwise not seek help due to stigma concerns. In addition, internet-based interventions may help reduced internalised stigma, or the extent to which a person internalises society’s negative view of an attribute they hold such as their sexuality or a mental or physical health difficulty. In the first paper a review of stigma will be provided, including internalised stigma and it’s impact on health and quality of life. The potential for technology to mitigate the influence of stigma and reduce internalised stigma will be discussed. The second paper will focus on research involving the use of technology to reduce internalised stigma in people with severe mental illness. In the third paper, research will be presented about an innovative internet intervention tailored to improve mental health outcomes, including through reducing internalised homophobia, in same-sex attracted young adults. The focus of the fourth paper will be results from an efficacy trial of therapist-guided internet-therapy for postpartum depression. The final paper will be focused on the role of internet interventions in reducing stigma associated with psychological distress and treatment side effects from prostate cancer. This will draw on research findings from interventions for men with prostate cancer and their partners.

Session 9B: Improving Accessibility and Reach: From Development to Dissemination
A key concern of the e-health community is to improve the accessibility and reach of interventions by working with members of the community at every stage of intervention development, evaluation and dissemination. This symposium shares what has been learned by three e-health research teams from working with users and the community to develop and disseminate interventions to promote both physical and mental health. The first paper describes how an international research team worked with the target user group to develop a novel approach to supporting people experiencing emotional distress, and reports findings from a qualitative study of user views and experiences of the intervention. The second paper presents the findings of a qualitative study carried out across 5 countries (UK, USA, Germany, Austria and Ireland) into user views of features of web design intended to enhance the accessibility of the intervention to people of all levels of health literacy. The third study analyses usage of a weight management intervention rolled out by public health teams to over 1000 users through workplaces in the UK, investigating how usage of a website and app is influenced by characteristics of the workplace and social factors. All three interventions were developed using the free LifeGuide open source software (which will be the topic of an introductory workshop at this conference), and this symposium also illustrates how LifeGuide allows intervention developers to easily collaborate in webpage design with geographically dispersed international teams, flexibly modify interventions based on iterative user feedback, and adapt interventions for dissemination in new usage contexts.

Session 10A: 15 Years of Internet Interventions Research: The Swedish Experience
One of the first trials in the world on guided internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy was conducted in Sweden and ISRII was initially intended to be an organization for CBT and the Internet. Since the late 1990’s the field has grown rapidly and the purpose of this symposium is to present an overview of the research and clinical implementations of internet interventions in Sweden.
Four individual presentations will be included covering systematic reviews and descriptions of guided internet treatments developed by our group for mood disorders, anxiety disorders, somatic disorders and clinical implementations including cost-effectiveness studies.
For mood disorders most Swedish trials have focused on major depression with trials on guided ICBT, psychodynamic treatment, acceptance and commitment therapy, and physical activity. There are also trials on Smartphone-delivered behavioural activation and blended treatments. Overall, the results show that guided internet treatment is as effectice as face-to-face therapy for major depression and one trial suggests that relapse can be prevented.
For anxiety disorders there are programs and controlled trials for most anxiety disorders including panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, severe health anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessesive compulsive disorder, specific phobia, and mixed anxiety-depression. Moreover, there are studies on specific problems such as procrastination. With the exception of bias modification training most studies show effects in line with face-to-face CBT. In addition to CBT there are Swedish trials on mindfulness-based internet treatment, interpersonal psychotherapy, and psychodynamic internet treatment.
Somatic conditions have been the target for ICBT studies for a long time since the first trial on headache in 1998. There are now programs and controlled trials done in Sweden on irritable bowel syndrome, chronic pain, tinnitus, breast cancer, insomnia, erectile dysfunction, hearing loss, and stress-related problems. In addition to the health problems there studies on pathological gambling.
Finally, there are now studies on cost-effectiveness of internet interventions and effectivess studies showing that guided internet treatment works in regular clinical settings.
The symposium concludes that there is now substantial empirical support for guided internet interventions, but that independent replications are needed as well as work on more severe mental health conditions.

Session 11A: Internet Interventions in Psycho-Oncology: Supporting Persons with Cancer and their Families
The focus of this symposium is on online interventions in the field of psycho-oncology. This research was conducted in Australia and Canada and has the potential to inform the more widespread delivery of interventions to persons with cancer and their families. The interventions discussed focus on reducing psychological distress in people with cancer and/or their partners. The efficacy of psychosocial support has been repeatedly reported in the cancer setting. However, access to evidence-based and timely psychosocial support is often limited. Online interventions have the potential to help services disseminate psychosocial support as a supplement to existing face-to-face services. In the first paper, results are presented of a randomised controlled trial of an online intervention for men with prostate cancer (My Road Ahead). In the second paper the focus is transdiagnostic internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy for cancer survivors in the re-entry phase. The third paper is on the development of an online intervention (e-TC) to reduce anxiety and depression in survivors of testicular cancer. Finally, a paper is presented concerning the development of an online intervention for partners of men with prostate cancer.

Session 11B: Fostering widespread up take of ehealth components in services for mental health and wellbeing: Discussion of key requirements, challenges and solutions
PURPOSE: Deepen the appreciation of factors that promote routine use of ehealth in services for mental health and wellbeing.

E-mental health programs and services have now been used by large numbers of people, and effectiveness studies show effect sizes that are substantial and comparable to those from efficacy trials. However, acceptance and use by practitioners and the general community remain sub-optimal in many instances. Examples of successful service integration and research on dissemination of other innovations may identify critical elements for effective translation to routine care.

Panel members briefly summarise results of their effectiveness studies, of national roll-out of an online clinic (MindSpot), and use of Internet-based CBT in standard clinical services in Sweden. Preliminary research on Australia-wide integration into general practices, private Psychology services and remote Indigenous settings from the e-Mental Health in Practice project is also described.

Panel discussion examines features of programs, IT resourcing, service policies and procedures, marketing, training and supervision which promote uptake, and ways these features may be enhanced. It explores challenges that have been encountered with budgets and funding models, hardware, connectivity and culturally diverse contexts, and discusses potential solutions.

Throughout the discussion, reference is made to available research and to gaps in existing knowledge. Members engage with the audience and co-panellists to identify innovative strategies to optimise reach and personal impact in differing national and social contexts, through seamless integration with existing and emerging services.

Session 12A: Internet-Based Interventions for the Prevention and Treatment of Eating Disorders and Obesity
This symposium brings together scientist-practitioners who are enthusiastic about using technology in interventions across the mental health intervention spectrum to prevent and treat eating disorders, promote healthy weight maintenance and loss as appropriate, and promote maintenance of treatment gains. Body dissatisfaction, disordered eating, eating disorders and obesity are highly prevalent and result in significant burden for individuals and society, highlighting the need for effective and widely disseminable interventions. Researchers from Stanford University, Washington University in St. Louis, and Technische Universität Dresden have been collaborating for the past 20 years to develop and evaluate online programs and universal/tailored interventions in the fields of eating disorder and obesity prevention, early intervention, treatment, and aftercare and to improve their accessibility and dissemination. As a result, the workgroups have succeeded in establishing a comprehensive programmatic line of research, developed ways to identify risk and high-risk populations for eating disorders, and developed and evaluated the efficacy of a variety of universal, targeted and indicated online prevention, treatment and aftercare programs for healthy weight regulation, eating disorders and obesity which are currently being widely disseminated both in the US and in Germany. In the symposium, they will share their latest findings and introduce ongoing research projects.
