The program is based on cognitive behavior therapy, a successful psychological treatment that helps individuals understand that the way they think about a situation can affect the way they feel and behave.

“The program will be delivered online so that it is widely available and can reach out to individuals who may not wish to discuss psychological complaints face-to-face,” said Dr. Bundy. “Another benefit of using the Internet is that participants can take part at their own convenience and in the privacy of their own home, working at their own pace.”

The trial is open to individuals aged 16 and older who have been diagnosed with plaque psoriasis and have internet access. The study will run until December 2009.
