Automated virtual reality (VR) cognitive therapy for patients with psychosis: study protocol for a single-blind parallel group randomised controlled trial (gameChange) (2019)
Journal Article
Freeman, D., Yu, L., Kabir, T., Martin, J., Craven, M., Leal, J., …Waite, F. (2019). Automated virtual reality (VR) cognitive therapy for patients with psychosis: study protocol for a single-blind parallel group randomised controlled trial (gameChange). BMJ Open, 9(8), e031606. https://doi.org/10.1136/bmjopen-2019-031606

Introduction Many patients with psychosis experience everyday social situations as anxiety-provoking. The fears can arise, for example, from paranoia, hallucinations, social anxiety or negative-self beliefs. The fears lead patients to withdraw from a...

Proportionate methods for evaluating a simple digital mental health tool (2017)
Journal Article
Davies, E. B., Craven, M. P., Martin, J. L., & Simons, L. (2017). Proportionate methods for evaluating a simple digital mental health tool. Evidence-Based Mental Health, 20(4), 112-117. https://doi.org/10.1136/eb-2017-102755

Background: Traditional evaluation methods are not keeping pace with rapid developments in mobile health. More flexible methodologies are needed to evaluate mHealth technologies, particularly simple, self-help tools. One approach is to combine a var...
