ARAUJO, Danilo de Freitas  e  COSTA, Elenskadja Lopes. Effectiveness of online Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy in the COVID-19 pandemic scenario: a systematic review. Rev. bras.ter. cogn. [online]. 2021, vol.17, n.2, pp. 105-112. ISSN 1808-5687.

The covid-19 pandemic has triggered or aggravated psychiatric symptoms. Thus, cognitive-behavioral interventions online can be viable treatment alternatives. The aim of this systematic review was to describe evidence on the effectiveness of online Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for pandemic-related psychiatric conditions. Randomized clinical trials (RCTs) produced between January 2020 and June 2021 were searched in the PUBMED, LILACS, Web of Science, SCOPUS, Embase and PsycINFO databases, based on the guidelines of the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-Analyses (PRISM). Seven RCTs were selected and included. The results show that online CBT interventions were effective in decreasing depression, anxiety, dysfunctional concerns, trauma, perceived stress and loneliness, and improving resilience. Three RCTs had a high risk of bias, suggesting the need for further studies, including RCTs and meta-analyses, to improve the strength of the evidence. In conclusion, online CBT has initial evidence of effectiveness in the face of the pandemic scenario.
