Course Description: Ecological momentary interventions (EMIs) rely on technologies such as smartphones to deliver brief interventions in natural, everyday contexts. In this article, the authors reviewed how EMIs have been defined, categorized, implemented and studied from 2009 through 2020. The authors examined many definitions of EMIs, including some that incorporate concepts such as ecological momentary assessments and just-in-time interventions. Mobile applications were found to be the most common medium for EMI delivery. These apps often include sensors that gather data on mental health states and facilitate just-in-time support, and they differ on dimensions such as information delivery, on-demand support, prompts for interaction, feedback, tailoring to individual needs, and extent of training and human support provided. The authors recommended greater tailoring of EMIs to fit individual needs, as well as a clearer rationale for the designs of specific EMIs and EMI components. Overall, this review has practical implications for the use and further development of EMIs in support of mental health.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the rationale for conducting this review, the questions that guided the review, and the methods by which studies were chosen and reviewed
