Slide European Journal of Psychotraumatology

Het European Journal of Psychotraumatology (EJPT) is een peer-reviewed vrij toegankelijk interdisciplinair wetenschappelijk tijdschrift en maakt onderdeel uit van de European Society of Traumatic Stress Studies (ESTSS).

Het doel van het European Journal of Psychotraumatology (EJPT) is om geleerden, behandelaars en onderzoekers te betrekken bij de essentiële vraagstukken over de gevolgen van stress en trauma. Het Journal richt zich niet enkel tot de posttraumatische stressstoornis (PTSS) maar probeert ook andere stoornissen gerelateerd aan het meemaken van een ingrijpende gebeurtenis te begrijpen, zoals depressieve stoornissen, middelenmisbruik, burn-out en neurobiologische of fysieke gevolgen. Met behulp van de nieuwste onderzoeken of klinische ervaringen op deze gebieden wordt spectrumbreed bijgedragen aan het voorkomen en behandelen van psychotraumagerelateerde klachten en stoornissen. Het European Journal of Psychotraumatology deelt de missie van de ESTSS om wetenschappelijke kennis over traumatische stress te verbeteren en te verspreiden. Papers kunnen bijvoorbeeld gaan over individuele gebeurtenissen, herhaald of chronisch (complex) trauma, grootschalige rampen of geweld.

De directe samenwerking van de NtVP met het internationaal netwerk via de Europese psychotrauma vereniging (ESTSS) en het European Journal of Psychotraumatology (EJPT) stelt ons in staat deze kennis voor een breder publiek toegankelijk te maken. De NtVP vertaalt daarom sinds het najaar van 2017 de abstracts van onderzoeken die recent gepubliceerd zijn in de EJPT.

In this systematic review, the authors synthesise evidence for the combined effect of HIV infection and PTEs and SLEs and/or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) on NCI of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) from high-, middle- and low- income countries.

Behavioral, structural, and functional neuroimaging have implicated the hippocampus as a critical brain region in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) pathogenesis. Recent work in a normative, primarily European, sample identified 15 unique genetic loci contributing to structural variability in six hippocampal subfield volumes. We explored the relevance of these loci in two samples (Mental Illness Research Education and Clinical Center [ MIRECC] and Grady; n=290) of trauma-exposed individuals enriched for PTSD and of diverse ancestry.

During the current COVID 19 pandemic, people in Europe are exposed to self-isolation, quarantine, job loss, risk of contracting COVID-19, or grief of loved ones. Such a complex array of stressors may lead to symptoms of adjustment disorder or posttraumatic stress disorder. This research protocol describes a study launched by the European Society of Traumatic Stress Studies (ESTSS) to investigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on symptoms of adjustment disorder across eleven European countries.

Acute stress symptoms (ASSs) are likely to be a common mental health problem in the acute period following the 2019 novel coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19) outbreak. To address this risk, substantial social support has been provided to relieve ASSs during the COVID-19 outbreak. However, the effectiveness of these support methods for relieving ASSs has not yet been assessed. The current study sought to examine the underlying mechanisms by which social support relieves ASSs, among primary and secondary school teachers.

A large body of research has shown that terrorism enhances fears and undermines perceived safety in a high proportion of both directly exposed individuals and individuals without any form of direct exposure (i.e. no geographical proximity to an attack). Some studies have further suggested that fear of terrorism may adversely affect health in those without direct exposure and that this may constitute an important public health burden because of the number who are indirectly exposed. Limited studies have investigated threat and safety perception after workplace terrorism and the possible consequences for employee health.

This study aims to investigate the impact of therapist characteristics (gender, clinical experience and theoretical background) on posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS) in a heterogeneous and international sample of traumatized children and adolescents.
