Randomized controlled trial of multimodular motion-assisted memory desensitization and reconsolidation (3MDR) for male military veterans with treatment-resistant post-traumatic stress disorder

Objective: To explore the potential efficacy of multi-modular motionassisted memory desensitization and reprocessing (3MDR) in British military veterans with treatment-resistant service-related PTSD.

Methods: Exploratory single-blind, randomized, parallel arm, crossover controlled trial with nested process evaluation to assess fidelity, adherence and factors that influence outcome.

The UK National Homicide Therapeutic Service : A Retrospective Naturalistic Study Among 929 Bereaved Individuals

Homicidal bereavement puts survivors at risk of developing a broad range of lasting and severe mental health problems. Previous research has often relied on relatively small and homogenous samples. Still, little is known about what factors influence the expression of symptoms following homicidal bereavement. Preventive and curative treatments often do not consider the complex coherence between the emotional, judicial, financial, and
societal challenges that likely arise following a homicide.

 

Imagery rescripting and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing as treatment for adults with post-traumatic stress disorder from childhood trauma : randomised clinical trial

Background
Investigation of treatments that effectively treat adults with post-traumatic stress disorder from childhood experiences (Ch-PTSD) and are well tolerated by patients is needed to improve outcomes for this population.

Aims

The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of two trauma-focused treatments, imagery rescripting (ImRs) and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), for treating Ch-PTSD.

Method

PTSD-Repository

The PTSD Trials Standardized Data Repository (PTSD-Repository) is a database that contains hundreds of variables extracted from more than 300 published randomized controlled clinical trials of PTSD treatment. The data in PTSD-Repository are free to use without restriction.

Virtual-Reality Based Treatment for Military Members and Veterans with Combat-Related Posttraumatic Stress Disorder : Protocol for a 3MDR (Multi-modular Motion-Assisted Memory Desensitization and Reconsolidation)

Background: Military members (MMs), including Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Service members (SMs), and Veterans are at elevated risk of experiencing occupational traumas which can cause operational stress injuries (OSIs) including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and moral injury (MI). Traditional evidence-based psychotherapeutic interventions can be effective in

Sleep disturbances and nightmares in victims of sexual abuse with post-traumatic stress disorder : an analysis of abuse-related characteristics

Background: Sexual abuse victims often experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), including sleep disturbances.

 

Objective: To investigate whether or not characteristics of sexual abuse are associated with sleep disturbance, and to explore whether correlates of sleep disturbance are distinguishable from those of PTSD symptom severity.

 

Exposure-related cortisol predicts outcome of psychotherapy in veterans with treatment-resistant posttraumatic stress disorder

Background

Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis functioning has been related to treatment outcome in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Previous studies have primarily focused on cortisol levels before and after a course of therapy and findings have not been fully consistent. This study investigated session-related cortisol levels in veterans with treatment-resistant PTSD over the course of a novel motion-assisted virtual reality exposure therapy and aimed to determine whether cortisol levels were related to changes in PTSD symptom severity.

 

A systematic review of factors associated with outcome of psychological treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder

Objective

 

Psychological interventions for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are not always effective and can leave some individuals with enduring symptoms. Little is known about factors that are associated with better or worse treatment outcome. Our objective was to address this gap.

Trauma‐Specific Treatment for Individuals With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities : A Review of the Literature From 2008 to 2018

Background

Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are at increased risk for adverse experiences and developing posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). However, trauma and PTSD in this population are frequently underdiagnosed and undertreated. Despite the availability of multiple types of trauma‐specific treatments for the general population, there is a gap in understanding these collective interventions within the IDD literature.
