Project Details

Description

The aim of this study is to determine the effectiveness of a brief treatment program for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in women victims of domestic violence. The sample will consist of 20 participants from institutions that attend to domestic violence in the city of Ibagué, all of whom will meet the DSM-IV-TR criteria for the diagnosis of PSD, with 10 being the waiting list control group and 10 the treatment group. The treatment program, derived from that of Labrador and Rincón, will be
applied in a group setting and will consist of 8 sessions, with its fundamental components being psychoeducation, deactivation techniques, cognitive therapy and exposure therapy. A quasi-experimental design will be used with two independent groups of repeated measures (in pre-treatment and post-treatment).
