To implement Group Problem Management Plus (PM+) in Syrian refugees with this RCT to evaluate feasibility, acceptability, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the culturally adapted Group PM+ intervention for adult Syrian refugees in Turkey.
This study aims at investigating the effectiveness of the drug, Ketamine, in combination with Prolonged Exposure (PE) therapy for people suffering from PTSD. Participation in the study includes Ketamine infusions, which occur once a week for three weeks. PE therapy sessions will be scheduled one day after each infusion, and may continue up to 12 weeks. After completely therapy, there will be two monthly follow-up assessment visits.
According to literature, it's difficult to evaluate the impact of the visit of the child in ICU. Currently, no recommendations are available regarding welcome and accompany children who visit their relative hospitalized in ICU. Collaboration between humanities and medical sciences brings to this question a complementary look. Majority of studies investigated the question of the impact of young child ICU visit in a unidirectional linear causality scheme visit = psychopathological impact. The visit of the child in ICU should not be considered as an isolated event whose objective characteristics would be alone vectors of trauma. Contrary, the child visit must be apprehended in relation to the quality of the supports on which the child can count. The investigators hypothesize that children can overcome the visit of a kin hospitalized in ICU if accompanying people can support the child and contain, before and after the visit, the emotions of the child.
In the experimental study, the well-established trauma film paradigm will be used to investigate the impact of expectations on the development of intrusive memories as a hallmark symptom of PTSD.
This is an observational study to assess the change in several psychological screening tools before and after a series of six ketamine infusions in paramedics who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder as a result of working in emergency medical services.
This will be a multistate, multicenter clinical study to determine the efficacy and safety of medical cannabis for a wide variety of chronic medical conditions.
The aim of this study is to identify if an avalanche accident has a psychological impact on avalanche victims. The investigators hypothesize that being exposed to an avalanche could generate enough stress to develop posttraumatic stress symptoms or even more, an authentic posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Additionally, the investigators think that such symptoms might lead to physical and psychological distress in daily life. Lastly, the investigators suppose that a serious traumatism, a complete and/or prolonged burial, the death of a family member or a closed friend could be a potential risk factors to develop PTSD symptoms in avalanche victims. To evaluate post traumatic stress symptoms and the quality of life of avalanche survivors, the investigators use the Impact of Event Scale - Revised and the Short Form 12. These two scales are included in a standardized questionnaire, which is submitted to avalanche victims during a phone call.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is prevalent and impairing in children and young people. Effective face to face treatments exist, including Cognitive Therapy for PTSD (CT-PTSD), developed by the researchers' group. However, few young people access effective treatments. The researchers are therefore developing a website and smart-phone App that will improve accessibility of this treatment by allowing trained therapists to deliver CT-PTSD over the internet (iCT) to young people (12-17 years old) with PTSD. This study aims to provide an initial evaluation of iCT. This will be done by running an uncontrolled case series with 6 young people. The objectives of the case series are to: to gauge acceptability of the programme to young people, carers, and therapists; to measure adherence to the programme; to test the battery of measures for acceptability; and to obtain estimates of clinical change.
This study will provide measures of safety and efficacy of the NightWare digital therapeutic system (iPhone + Apple watch + proprietary application) for the treatment of nightmare disorder associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)-related sleep disturbance and the impact of improved sleep with the NightWare digital therapeutic system. The investigators hypothesize that the NightWare digital therapeutic system will significantly improve sleep quality in participants with PTSD-Related nightmares and poor sleep quality.
The present study is a pragmatic clinical trial that will examine the effectiveness of Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) in reducing PTSD symptom severity, depression symptoms, and suicidal thoughts among military personnel and veterans with PTSD when delivered in three different formats: (1)12 sessions delivered once per week in an office/clinic setting; (2) 12 sessions delivered once per day in an office/clinic setting; and (3) 12 sessions delivered once per day in a recreational setting.
