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.

This brief report presents a review of prolonged exposure (PE) therapy and its feasibility as a trauma therapy for PTSD in LMICs. First, we present a brief overview of PE as a first-line treatment for PTSD. Second, using South Africa as a case example, we present a brief overview of traumatic stress in South Africa and how mental healthcare has developed since the abolishment of apartheid in 1994. Lastly, we discuss the challenges pertaining to the dissemination and implementation of PE in LMICs and propose future perspectives regarding the implementation of ESTs such as PE in LMICs.

Caregivers play a key role in the success of trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy (TF-CBT). Yet, the effect of their alliance on treatment outcomes besides the other parties in treatment has hardly been studied. This study examined the working alliance (WA) of therapists, patients and caregivers in TF-CBT and its contribution on treatment outcome over time.

There is substantial comorbidity between trauma-related disorders (TRDs), dissociative disorders (DDs) and personality disorders (PDs), especially in patients who report childhood trauma and emotional neglect. However, little is known about the course of these comorbid disorders, despite the fact that this could be of great clinical importance in guiding treatment. This study describes the two-year course of a cohort of patients with (comorbid) TRDs, DDs and PDs and aims to identify possible predictors of course.

This study aimed to understand patient perspectives on the role of psychotrauma in psychosis and related treatment options. A qualitative exploratory approach was adopted using in-depth interviews with individuals experiencing psychosis.

War captivity is one of the most severe human-made traumatic events which lead to self-amplifying cycle of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms and attachment insecurities. Solid evidence in the literature pointed out on the intergenerational transmission of PTSD symptoms. However, no research has been conducted on the intergenerational transmission of attachment insecurities and the effect of the self-amplifying cycle among former prisoners of war (ex-POWs) and their offspring attachment insecurities.

Increasing evidence supports a close link between REM sleep and the consolidation of emotionally toned memories such as traumatic experiences. In order to investigate the role of REM sleep for the development of clinical symptoms related to traumatic experiences, beyond experimental models in the laboratory, sleep of acutely traumatised individuals may be examined on the first night after the traumatic event. This might allow us to identify EEG variables predicting the development of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, and guide the way to novel sleep interventions to prevent PTSD.
