Effect of Problem-solving Therapy Offered Through a Web Platform on Levels of Stress

2019-07-16 10:38:37 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Work-related stress is a problem due to its repercussions on workers' health and productivity, which is why workplace interventions are required to reduce stress levels through coping techniques. One of the interventions in mental health to reduce levels of work stress are those based on the Internet and mobile applications, with proven effectiveness. Among the interventions are cognitive behavioral therapies; and within these the Problem Solving Therapy (TSP).

Therefore, there is a need to study the effect of Problem Solving Therapy offered through a web platform on the levels of self-perceived stress. However, there have been no studies on mental health interventions such as the TSP for the reduction of stress levels in office workers. For this reason, the objective of the study is to determine, through a randomized cluster trial, the effectiveness of problem-solving therapy offered through a web platform on self-perceived stress levels. Two scales will measure the levels of stress; one for self-perceived stress and another for work-related stress. Workers who have a high score on both scales will be enrolled. The establishments assigned to the intervention will receive the TSP distributed in 7 sessions. The establishments in the control group would have access to a web page with information on stress management. Immediately after having finished the last session, self-perceived stress levels will be evaluated. One month later a new measurement will be made to evaluate the persistence of the effect.

Description

The objective of the study is to determine, through a randomized cluster trial, the effectiveness of problem-solving therapy offered through a web platform on self-perceived stress levels.

Overall objective Evaluate the effect of Problem Solving Therapy offered through a web platform, on the self-perceived stress level of administrative workers.

Specific objectives

- Develop and validate a web platform with problem-solving therapy.

- Determine the cut-off point of self-perceived stress measurement scales.

- Evaluate the factors associated with stress in office workers.

- Compare the levels of self-perceived stress (EES) before and after the use of a web platform with educational material in Problem Solving Therapy (TSP).

- Compare the effect of a conventional platform versus the Problem Solving Therapy offered through a web platform on self-perceived stress levels.

- Compare the levels of work stress (EEL) before and after the use of a web platform with educational material in Problem Solving Therapy (TSP).

- Compare the effect of Problem Solving Therapy offered through a web platform versus a conventional web platform on work stress levels (EEL).

- Evaluate the correlation between the self-perceived stress scale and the work stress scale.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Instructional use of examples or cases to teach using problem-solving skills and critical thinking.

Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.

A framework for development and promotion of common data formats and exchange protocols linked in a way that can be read directly by computers. Semantic Web is a platform for sharing and reusing data across application, enterprise, and community boundaries, by linking concepts rather than just documents.

Trial-and-error methods of problem-solving used when an algorithmic approach is impractical

A learning situation involving more than one alternative from which a selection is made in order to attain a specific goal.
