Trial Design

4Treatment groups
Experimental Treatment
Group I: Tunneled Delivery/Standard ResourcesExperimental Treatment3 Interventions
In this arm, participants will be guided through the Self-Guided PSP Wellbeing Course in a predetermined order and using predetermined timing. Future lessons will "unlock" as previous lessons are completed. Participants receiving the standard resources will be presented with resources that are typically presented in PSPNET courses. This includes lesson slides case stories, do-it yourself guides, and frequently asked questions pages.
Group II: Tunneled Delivery/Enhanced Social Learning ResourcesExperimental Treatment3 Interventions
In this arm, participants will be guided through the Self-Guided PSP Wellbeing Course in a predetermined order and using predetermined timing. Future lessons will "unlock" as previous lessons are completed. Participants receiving the enhanced social learning resources will receive the same resources offered in the standard conditions (i.e., lesson slides, case stories, do-it-yourself guides, and frequently asked questions pages) and will also receive additional resources. Additional resources will include homework records to accompany the case stories, de-identified quotations from previous clients for each lesson, and a motivational video encouraging them to engage with the course.
Group III: Personalized Delivery/Standard ResourcesExperimental Treatment3 Interventions
In this arm, participants will be able to navigate through the course modules in whichever order and at whatever pace they like. Participants will not have to complete one lesson in order to gain access to the following lesson. Participants receiving the standard resources will be presented with resources that are typically presented in the course. This includes lesson slides, case stories, do-it yourself guides, and frequently asked questions pages.
Group IV: Personalized Delivery/Enhanced Social Learning ResourcesExperimental Treatment3 Interventions
