Gaebel, W; Großimlinghaus, I; Mucic, D; Maercker, Andreas; Zielasek, J; Kerst, A (2017). EPA guidance on eMental health interventions in the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). European Psychiatry, 41:140-152.

Abstract

The aim of this EPA guidance was to develop recommendations on eMental health interventions in the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A systematic literature search was performed and 40 articles were retrieved and assessed with regard to study characteristics, applied technologies, therapeutic approaches, diagnostic ascertainment, efficacy, sustainability of clinical effects, practicability and acceptance, attrition rates, safety, clinician-supported vs. non-supported interventions and active vs. waiting-list controls. The reviewed studies showed a great heterogeneity concerning study type, study samples, interventions and outcome measures. Based on these findings, five graded recommendations dealing with symptom reduction, acceptability, type of administration, clinician support, self-efficacy and coping were developed.
