Psychological interventions such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and metacognitive training (MCT) have proven to be effective treatments for schizophrenia, but only a small number of patients actually gain access to them. Internet-based interventions are effective, but hardly explored for schizophrenia. This pilot study created an Online-MCT to investigate the feasibility, efficacy, and possible negative effects of the program. Fifteen patients participated in this uncontrolled study. During the 6-week intervention phase, two-thirds of participants completed the whole program. Only 6.1 % of all possible negative effects were strongly agreed to. Symptom severity did not change significantly, but 80 % of participants were (very) satisfied with the program, suggesting that internet-based interventions could help reduce the gap in psychological treatments of schizophrenia.
