ABSTRACT
Dramatic increases in the number of individuals affected by mental disorders lead to the reconsideration of the basic principles according to which health-care has this far been delivered. Cost-effective, easily accessible and effective prevention and intervention programs are needed to remedy the actual trend in mental health problems. A viable solution resides in the possibilities offered by computerized programs. The present paper intends to briefly present the advantages and disadvantages of Computer Mediated Therapy in the case of posttraumatic stress disorder and other trauma-induced mental health problems, simultaneously offering alternatives to remedy possible shortcomings.
