Cultural Adaptation of Hap-pas-Hapi (Step-by-Step) for Albanian-speaking Immigrants in Switzerland and Germany

2020-01-22 12:12:55 | BioPortfolio


We aim to compare two different levels of cultural adaptation of an Internet- and mobile-based intervention for the treatment of depression called Hap-pas-Hapi among Albanian-speaking immigrants in Switzerland and Germany. One arm will include the generic (minimally adapted) version of Hap-pas Hapi. The other arm will include a version of Hap-pas-Hapi that was adapted to the target population's cultural concepts of distress. Both versions include five sessions and the same therapeutic techniques.
