INTERNET-BASED PSYCHOLOGICAL TREATMENTS FOR GRIEF: REVIEW OF LITERATURE
There are effective cognitive-behavioral treatments to treat prolonged grief, but many people cannot access them. Because of its accessibility, the use of internet is an alternative to this problem. The aim of this study was to review the literature of internet based psychological interventions for grief. A search of keywords in three databases was carried out (PubMed, Web of Science y PubPsych) and the selected studies were analyzed. Online treatments for grief show predominantly positive results in terms of reducing grief symptoms and other clinical symptoms. These results are promising and offer a first approximation about the effectiveness of Internet-based treatments for grief.
