About

This project will develop and refine a computer-delivered integrated Personalized Feedback Intervention (PFI) that directly addresses smoking and distress tolerance. The PFI will focus on feedback about smoking behavior, distress tolerance, and adaptive coping strategies.

Full description

The primary goal of the research study is to investigate the efficacy of a brief, personalized computer-delivered transdiagnostic intervention (PFI) that addresses smoking and distress tolerance to reduce smoking, increase quit attempts, reduce perceived barriers to cessation, increase distress tolerance, reduce anxiety/depressive symptoms, and increase adaptive coping skills compared to a personalized feedback on smoking only control. To address this aim, the investigators will implement a randomized controlled trial that will employ a longitudinal experimental design and involve four stages: (a) phone-screener (pre-screener); (b) baseline appointment consisting of a pre-intervention assessment (eligibility), random assignment to a one-session computer-delivered intervention (Active PFI versus Control PFI with no personalized feedback on distress tolerance), and a post-intervention assessment; (c) 2-week follow-up; (d) 1-month follow-up. Assessments will include a multi-method approach, including biological, behavioral, and self-report methods.
