What are the consequences of corona in mental health care? The switch was quite a challenge, but with an intensive online program, the treatment continued as well as possible. In this video Ruud Jongedijk and Fleur van Hensbergen from ARQ National Psychotrauma Center have their say.

 

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.

 

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

It informs and guides mental health clinicians, chaplains, and other helping professionals about relative conceptual issues in moral injury and promising therapeutic approaches to possibly incorporate in their work with morally injured patients who seek their care.

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).

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

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.
