Manchester metropolitan University study: Single session behavioural activation training programme online for OCD

Posted on: June 25th, 2021

Manchester Metropolitan University is conducting research around a brief training programme to understand its delivery using digital online resources (in a single session) for individuals impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic and self-assessed as having OCD symptoms.

What will I be asked to do? 

You will be asked to complete a single online training programme lasting approximately 30 minutes on one occasion, and then complete follow-up questions on three occasions, each lasting 10 minutes. The training programme is very low-risk, focusing on your thoughts, moods and behaviour in helping to set some positive goals for the future.

The programme requires no deep thinking and we won’t ask you to specifically detail any issues or problems you are having and why you are having them. The training programme is a straightforward approach to looking to the future positively. To assess this, we are asking you to engage in answering some questions so that you can produce some goals. The aim of the training programme is to teach you about ways to set goals and make plans for the future.
