MPST3: Online Implementation of Problem-Solving Skills Training for Parents of Newly Diagnosed Childhood Cancer Patients

Type of Protocol/Clinical Study

Supportive Studies: Psychology


This study compares the effectiveness of two active interventions: face-to-face problem- solving skills training (PSST), which is the standard, and on-line PSST (e-PSST). All procedures are for research purposes only. Participants are a parent of a newly diagnosed patient. The participant has a one-hour baseline assessment. After the base line assessment, the participant is selected by chance, like flipping a coin to receive problem-solving skills training (PSST) either A) face to face, in person with a research assistant, or B) on-line using a simple computer program. PSST focuses on solving problems that confront parents of children with cancer.
