This study aims to identify profiles of PTSD and depressive symptoms among Shidu parents and to explore the predictors of profile membership.

While self-reported post-traumatic growth (PTG) has been documented after a wide variety of potentially traumatic experiences, we need more knowledge on the mechanisms behind PTG to gain a better understanding of this phenomenon. In this study, the authors aimed to investigate the hypothesized mechanism of perceived event centrality as a mediator on the pathway between peritraumatic reactions and later PTG.

First responders are routinely exposed to traumatic critical incidents, placing them at higher risk for developing stress-related psychopathology and associated health problems than the general population. Interventions which could improve resilience to stress may help to protect the health of this high risk population. We systematically reviewed such interventions for first responders to determine which ones work and why.

Using network analysis, this study examined the structure of PTSD and depression in a sample of migrant domestic workers, an especially vulnerable community of labour migrants. This study sought to derive the central or most important symptoms, strongest edges or relationships among symptoms, and bridge symptoms between PTSD and depression.

To compare the efficacy of dialectical behavior therapy for PTSD (DBT-PTSD), a new, specifically designed, phase-based treatment program, against that of cognitive processing therapy (CPT), one of the best empirically supported treatments for PTSD.

Stemmen in het hoofd worden van oudsher gedempt met medicatie. De laatste jaren ontstaat steeds meer ruimte voor behandelingen op die erop gericht zijn om met stemmen te leren leven. ‘Ik voelde me eindelijk begrepen.’

Women with BPD may require a specifically designed intervention to achieve a positive evaluation of their entire body. The evaluation of sexually connoted body areas seems to remain an issue even after remission from the disorder has been achieved.

The aim of the present study is to test the effectiveness of the Sleeping Dogs method for chronically traumatized children. In a quantitative multicenter pre-post-treatment study, we will examine the effects of the Sleeping Dogs intervention. We expect that, through the intervention, chronically traumatized children will be able and motivated to talk about their traumatic memories and engage in and complete EMDR or TF-CBT.
