FEIJO, Luan Paris; FERMANN, Ilana Luiz; ANDRETTA, Ilana  e  SERRALTA, Fernanda Barcellos. Evidences of efficacy of internet psychotherapeutic treatments: systematic review. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.spe, pp. 1-25. ISSN 1983-8220.

The use of information and communication technologies in mental health is a growing trend. In recent years, research has focused on its influence on internet-mediated psychotherapeutic treatments. This study conducted a systematic review of the results of online psychotherapeutic treatments to verify the indications of its efficacy. Searches were performed in the databases PsycINFO, Scielo and Periódicos da CAPES with the descriptors "treatment by the internet", "online psychotherapy", "telepsychology" and "effectiveness". Sixteen studies were found for final analysis; the results indicate evidence of efficacy of these interventions for many psychopathological disorders. Cognitive-behavioral therapy was the theoretical approach most used in the interventions. Online interventions with a psychotherapist were superior to other types of interventions. Few papers described the characteristics of the control groups and the training of psychotherapists. Clinical heterogeneity and outcome assessment tools limit the generalization of findings and comparison between studies.
