TAKING PART

IN THE AVATAR2 TRIAL

OUR AIMS

To test two different forms of AVATAR therapy and to find out which might be most helpful for people. People will be offered either six sessions (brief AVATAR therapy) or twelve sessions (extended AVATAR therapy), delivered weekly.

We would also like to learn more about how AVATAR therapy may work, how it can be tailored to the individual and how best to deliver the therapy in clinical services.

THE TRIAL

345 people from four NHS areas (South London, North London, Manchester and Glasgow) who have agreed to take part in the project will be randomly chosen to go into one of three pathways:

  • usual care

  • brief AVATAR therapy + usual care

  • extended AVATAR therapy + usual care 

 

This is to see whether AVATAR therapy helps people when added to the care they normally get. The standard care you receive from the NHS will not change as a result of taking part in this research study.
