ABSTRACT The first Interapy treatment through the internet, concerning posttraumatic stress, was published in 1999. Many studies and publications followed. This paper describes the general background of the Interapy treatments, the screening, the procedures, the instruments, the treatment elements and results of three randomised controlled outcome studies on posttraumatic stress, work related chronic stress and depression. The effects are strong. The treatment of one patient (depression) is presented as an illustration. Subsequently, we present data of the clients’ subjective evaluations of the different treatment elements, the procedures and the therapists. Finally, the results are discussed.
