TAVARES, Inajá; PIETA, Maria Adélia Minghelli; PEDROSO, Maria Eduarda  e  DIAS, Ana Cristina Garcia. Self-guided internet-based cognitive-behavioral interventions for adolescents: a review. Rev. bras.ter. cogn. [online]. 2021, vol.17, n.2, pp. 135-141. ISSN 1808-5687.

The management of psychological disorders has been the focus of different self-guided cognitive-behavioral interventions mediated by technologies through computer and smartphone applications. The aim of this study was to identify and describe interventions such as those aimed at adolescents. For this, an integrative literature review was conducted in PsycINFO, Scopus, and Web of Science databases, using four blocks with descriptors that represented: self-guided applications, types of interventions, cognitive-behavioral therapy and adolescents. After the process of analyzing and selecting the 93 results found, the final sample consisted of 19 articles referring to 13 interventions. These have been described in efficacy studies with more than one group, protocols to assess efficacy, pilot investigations, complementary aspects studies, and case studies. Anxiety and depression were the main therapeutic targets and 9 articles showed favorable results for the interventions use. Despite considering the potential to effectively optimize and streamline mental health care, it is clear how incipient are investigations based on cognitive-behavioral therapy in mobile health with adolescents.
