The Protect Lab is an interdisciplinary research unit headed by Dr. David Daniel Ebert. We focus on the development, scientific evaluation and delivery of Behavioral Health Technology interventions, with a special focus on mental illness.
Further work focuses on the prevention of mental illness as well as the health economic evaluation of psychosocial interventions. The ProtectLab is a working unit of the Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy of the FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg and works in close cooperation with a cluster of national and international research institutes, service providers and public policy representatives.
Online trainings can be used as a self-help tool for both prevention, (occupational) health promotion, and treatment with many benefits:
Time and place independence: The programs are accessible around the clock and can be flexibly integrated into the individual daily routine
Anonymity: Online-based programs provide the ability to search for low-threshold and anonymous help.
Elimination of waiting times: Affected persons can immediately have access to support.
Evidence-based methods: proven and successful methods of psychotherapy are used
