Remote Delivery Guides

Many therapists are likely to be working from home and delivering treatment remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Below we provide guidance in how to remotely deliver the NICE recommended cognitive therapies for PTSD, Social Anxiety Disorder and Panic Disorder that were developed by the OxCADAT team. These guides assume that therapists are already familiar with all of the main features of the treatment. More detailed guidance (with multiple video illustrations) of the main features of the treatment can be accessed by logging in as a clinician to our main therapist resources website.

PTSD linked to experience in Intensive Care Units (ICU)

Research shows that being treated or working in intensive care units can trigger post-traumatic stress disorder. As many more people than usual are likely to have experience in ICUs during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have written two guides on PTSD after intensive care for psychological therapists and also an information sheet for health care professionals.

Evidence-Based Well-Being and Mental Health Support for NHS Frontline Staff

The COVID-19 pandemic poses many challenges for frontline staff, including: increases in hospital admissions, lengthy decontamination procedures, longer shifts, work that may extend beyond one’s level of expertise, exhaustion, high levels of trauma, and separation from partner and family. Here we provide evidence-based support for frontline staff in two formats.  The first is an accessible infographic summarising 7 evidence-based tools to support health and wellbeing during periods of exceptional stress. The second is a longer document which gives more information and summarises the evidence for each of the tools.
