  • Abstract

    Technological innovations have changed the way that mental healthcare interventions are delivered. In recent years, robots have been integrated into treatments for multiple mental health problems. To clarify public opinion regarding the integration of robots into psychological treatments, this study assessed parents' reaction to robot-assisted therapy as a treatment option for children with disruptive behavior problems. Parents from a community sample (N = 100) were presented with a brief clinical description of a child with disruptive behavior problems and evaluated (through treatment acceptability ratings and positive-negative evaluation scores) three different treatment options for that child: a robot-assisted therapy, an Internet-based treatment, and a no-treatment comparison group. In addition, participants provided demographic information as well as information on their own experiences with mental health care and their use of technology. This study was designed to address the following questions: Is robot-assisted therapy considered an acceptable form of treatment for children with disruptive behavior problems? Is the acceptability of robot-assisted therapy similar to Internet-based treatment? Is robot-assisted therapy more acceptable than waiting to see if the problem improves on its own (i.e., no-treatment comparison)?
