A study published in PloS ONE tested a new ICBT platform. Twenty-one adolescents (12–17 years) with OCD and their parents were enrolled in the study. All participants received 12 weeks of ICBT with therapist support. Treatment yielded significant improvements with a large effect size of d = 2.29 (95% CI 1.5–3.07) on the CY-BOCS. Patients continued to improve at follow-up. This is a study out of Eva Serlachius’ research group at Karolinska Institutet. Click reference for full text.
