PHASE-BASED TREATMENT FOR POSTTRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER IN TRAUMATIZED REFUGEES
Grant number: 1139094 | Funding period: 2018 - 2021
Refugees report high rates of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Low response rates to psychological interventions for PTSD in refugees may be explained by their failure to target co-morbid emotion regulation difficulties. In this project, we will test the efficacy of a phase-based intervention that first targets emotion regulation difficulties before implementing trauma-focused therapy to reduce PTSD in refugees. Findings will advance knowledge and inform clinical interventions for refugees.
