Abstract

Objectives: We evaluated factors predictive of the effect of internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in breast cancer survivors with a sexual dysfunction.
Methods: Fifty-five women completed questionnaires assessing sexual functioning and distress at baseline and post-CBT.
Results: Higher therapy compliance and better partner baseline sexual functioning predicted better post-CBT sexual functioning. Higher therapy compliance and higher partner relationship satisfaction predicted lower sexual distress. Therapy compliance, in turn, was predicted by active partner involvement in therapy and a stronger therapeutic relationship.
Conclusions: To increase the effect of internet-based CBT, we recommend partner involvement in therapy and establishing a strong therapeutic relationship.
