Background In DSM-5 two new diagnoses, somatic symptom disorder (SSD) and illness anxiety disorder (IAD), have replaced DSM-IV hypochondriasis. There are no previous treatment studies for these disorders. Cognitive–behavioural therapy (CBT) delivered as therapist-guided or unguided internet treatment or as unguided bibliotherapy could be used to increase treatment accessibility. Aims To investigate the effect of CBT delivered as guided internet treatment (ICBT), unguided internet treatment (U… Expand
Help from home for depression: A randomised controlled trial comparing internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy with bibliotherapy for depression
TLDR
Self-help based interventions could be beneficial in treating depression, however vigilance needs to be applied when selecting from the range of materials available. Expand
Internet-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Versus Psychoeducation Control for Illness Anxiety Disorder and Somatic Symptom Disorder: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
iCBT for health anxiety is more effective than psychoeducation, clinical support, and monitoring, and presents an efficacious and accessible treatment option for people with health anxiety. Expand
Pilot trial of a therapist-supported internet-delivered cognitive behavioural therapy program for health anxiety
TLDR
The first English-language clinician-guided iCBT program for health anxiety is developed and an open pilot trial is conducted to examine its acceptability, impact on health anxiety and comorbidity, disability, and the cognitive and behavioural factors thought to maintain the disorder. Expand
Internet-delivered exposure therapy versus internet-delivered cognitive behavioral therapy for panic disorder: A pilot randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Internet-delivered exposure therapy appeared to be as acceptable and efficacious as more established iCBT, despite including less strategies, however, a fully powered replication is now needed to compare the two approaches. Expand
Efficacy of a guided internet-based intervention (iSOMA) for somatic symptoms and related distress in university students: study protocol of a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
This parallel two-armed randomised controlled trial evaluates an 8-week guided intervention, including web-based consecutive modules based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) principles against a waitlist control group. Expand
The efficacy of cognitive behavioural therapy in somatoform disorders and medically unexplained physical symptoms: A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
TLDR
CBT was particularly beneficial when the duration of session was more than 50 min to reduce the severity of somatic symptoms from pre to post treatment time, when it was group based and applied affective and developed good interpersonal strategy during the treatment. Expand
The effectiveness of internet-delivered cognitive behavioural therapy for health anxiety in routine care.
TLDR
iCBT is an effective treatment for health anxiety symptoms in routine care, but methods to increase adherence are needed to optimise benefits to participants and Randomised controlled effectiveness trials with long-term follow-up are needed. Expand
Cognitive behavior therapy for health anxiety: systematic review and meta-analysis of clinical efficacy and health economic outcomes
TLDR
CBT for health anxiety is probably cost-effective, but with limited effect on the quality of life, and ICBT had effects comparable to face-to-face CBT. Expand
An Evaluation of the Effectiveness of a Transdiagnostic Bibliotherapy Program for Anxiety and Related Disorders: Results From Two Studies Using a Benchmarking Approach
Anxiety and related disorders are common and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for these disorders. However, patients face many barriers to accessingExpand
Mediators of treatment effect in minimal-contact cognitive behaviour therapy for severe health anxiety: A theory-driven analysis based on a randomised controlled trial.
TLDR
CBT influenced health anxiety behaviours, non-reactivity to inner experiences and perceived competence, and these variables were associated with the outcome, but their role as mediators was not corroborated because it was found no evidence that changes in these variables predicted subsequent changes in health anxiety.

TLDR
In general, effect sizes of internet-based interventions for symptoms of anxiety were larger than effect sizes for depressive symptoms; however, this might be explained by differences in the amount of therapist support. Expand
