  1. Note. T0 = Intake; T1 = Baseline; T2 = Post-assessment; T3 = One month follow-up; T4 =Six months follow-up; T5 = 12 months follow-up; Measures at T1, Training 1 and T2 are administered by an experimenter, who is blinded to the training conditions. Training 2–8 and all follow-up measures (T3–T5) are administered via the internet
