Clinical Trial Summary

Background: Studies among Syrian refugees showed high prevalence rates of PTSD. The objective of the present study was to investigate the effectiveness of Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) in treating patients with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) using a clinical trial. Methods: Data will be obtained through interviewing patients seeking for PTSD treatment. Patients will be interviewed by a clinician and asked to complete the Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale (CAPS-5), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II), Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI). Assessments will be conducted at baseline, 3-, and 12-months posttreatment. The primary outcomes will be the scores of CAPS, BDI-II, and BAI. Results: we predict that CPT will result in greater reductions in CAPS scores.

Clinical Trial Description

Although individuals with PTSD experience significant suffering, disability, and a challenging clinical course, there are still significant gaps in the evidence addressing effective treatment options. Therefore, in the current study CPT will determine the effectiveness in treating Syrian patients with PTSD. Current study significantly adds to the existing literature. It is a novel study in Egypt and adds to the literature. ;
