Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter

Abstract

The market for health-related apps is growing rapidly, and preliminary results show positive effects on stress, anxiety, depression and perceived well-being. This work is proposedas a guide for those who want to introduce the use of apps in their clinical practice. To qualify for review, the apps had to meet two prerequisites: one, to have one or more RCTs that demonstrate its effectiveness and two, to be available on the markets. A total of 70 apps are listed, of which 47 are supported by RCTs. Overall, the research found in this review shows that apps can be an effective support for therapy and that their use produces clinical benefits for most psychological problems, but further studies and clear regulations on the quality of the proposed apps are needed.
