Abstract

Chronic work-related stress and insufficient recovery from workload can gradually lead to problems with mental and physical health.
Resources in healthcare are limited especially for preventive treatment, but low-cost support can be provided by Internet-based behavior change interventions. This paper describes the design of an Internet intervention which supports working-age people in managing and preventing stress-related health and wellness problems.
The intervention is designed for early prevention and aims to motivate individuals to take responsibility for their own well-being. It allows them to choose the approach to take to address personally significant issues, while guiding them through the process.
The first iteration of the intervention was evaluated with three user groups and subsequently improved based on the user experiences to be more persuasive, motivating and better suited for independent use.
Goal setting and follow-up were especially enhanced, tunneled structure improved, and the threshold of use lowered.
