FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I want access myself:
Assisted Self-Help does not want personal information and, we therefore use unique codes for login. Most people who use Assisted Self-Help get such a code from a health service / company, but it is also possible to buy access via the website as a private individual.

My health care service is thinking about offering assisted Self-Help: Health care services can purchase various packages of coping tools. Employees in the service get access to a website where they can easily create access codes for the tools and follow the development along the way if the user gives access to this.

It does not require
any software installation or integration with other systems to get started. You just need internet access.

If you are going to go through one of our tools, you start on the front page of AssistedSelfHelp.comBy entering the access code in the code field and pressing «OK», you get access to the content of the mastering tool that the person who is to follow you up thought was best for you.

It does not require any software installation or integration with other systems to use our tools.

The most common way to get such an access code is via health services that buy packages with access and offers them to its users

Otherwise as a individual private user you can buy access to our self help tools..

To access the tools, you need an access code. Most people who use Assisted Self-Help get this as part of an offer in a business / health service that purchases larger packages. In this way, many people get a code for free when they turn to public low-threshold services in Norway such as fast mental health care, GPs or other mental health services.

If your municipality or health service does not offer Assisted Self-Help, it is possible to buy access directly as a private person, but we would like to point out that the effect is best for most people when the tools are followed through with a few weeks of simultaneous follow-up by a professional.

The online tools contain exercises, tasks and information from evidence-based methods such as cognitive therapy, meta-cognitive treatment and ACT. Each of the tools consists of 6 parts, with short measurements before and after the mastering tool has been completed. If you fill in the measurements, you can by yourself follow how you feel every time you have logged in.

The coping tooks for anxiety, depression and sleep issues were developed by two Norwegian psychologists, Aksel Inge Sindig and Oskar Blakstad. Parts of the tools are based on work books made by Molde municipality that we were allowed to use.

The tools for stress/burnout and generalized anxiety was made by MSc in psychology Emily Hill, psychiatric Nurse Alf Magne Andersen and Oskar Blakstad.

Psychologist Oskar Blakstad and Aksel Sindig are the authors of improve your self esteem.

Psychologist Oskar Blakstad wrote and develop Overcoming perfectionism.

Psychologist Øyvind Halsøy and Oskar Blakstad wrote and developed overcoming the corona crisis and mastering exposure.

The tool for work related health was developed by psychologist Thomas Tobro Wøien.

Psychiater Ingvard Wilhelmsen wrote and developed overcoming health anxiety. Quality assurance by RPH Namsos municipality and RPH Molde municipality.

The coping tools have been reviewed by a number of mental health care professionals and are revised if we are made aware of errors or other shortcomings.

In short, Assisted Self-Help does not store any information that can identify the user of the coping tools. That is why unique codes are used to gain access. However, there are two cases where it is relevant to talk about privacy:

1. Do you receive follow-up from a professional or supervisor? Many organizations, (not all), store the code along with information that identifies the person using the code in their systems. This is done because the professionals in the company have access to an overview of codes they have issued. If you give them access, the professional can see what you are working on along the way, and in this way get a better opportunity to improve follow-up. You can anonymize by revoking access and changing code. This can be done at any time under "settings" after login. read more here

2. Are you buying access as a private individual? The bank card used is anonymised in the purchase solution (Stripe.com). It is optional to receive a receipt, but if you need this, both Assistant Self-Help and Stripe must have your email in order to send out a receipt. Assisted Self-Help stores personal information when necessary to provide documentation of purchases, and deletes them as soon as possible. read more here here

You can find our privacy statement.

You can safely use Assisted Self-Help. We do not store information that could identify a person using the coping tools. Login takes place with a unique and random code consisting of numbers and letters, and you are never asked to do tasks that could lead to the registration of personal information.

You are anonymous as long as no one can link the code to personal information about you, but please note the following:
For private purchases via the website, you will be completely anonymous if you do not need a receipt.

If you have received the code from an organization / health service, they may have routines for storing the code in their systems to give you the best possible follow-up. There will be strict laws governing access to these systems (which can be a patient record, for example). As long as the connection to personal information is possible, what is stored with Assisted Self-Help will still be considered "pseudonymous personal information", because professionals depend on other protected information to find out who uses the code. If you do not give the business access what you register at the first login and change the code you will be anonymous. You can also be anonymised later, e.g when follow-up is completed.
