Objectives: To assess effects on hallucinations, delusions, remission from psychosis, depression, dissociation and social functioning of PTSD treatment versus a waitlist condition in patients with psychosis.

Method: In the Treating Trauma In Psychosis study 155 patients in treatment as usual for a psychotic disorder (MINI+) were randomly assigned to EMDR, Prolonged Exposure or Waiting List for their co morbid PTSD (CAPS). Both treatment conditions were superior to Waiting List in diminishing PTSD (1). Secondary outcome variables were monitored before and after treatment and at 6-month follow-up. The PSYRATS measured hallucinations and delusions, the GPTS paranoid thoughts, the SCI-PANSS measured remission from schizophrenia symptomatology, the BDI-II depression and suicidality, the CAPS-items 28-30 dissociation and the PSP social functioning.

Results: The treatment conditions caused neutral to positive changes in all secondary outcome variables. Details will be shown in this presentation.

Conclusions: This study adds strong arguments that in clinical practice psychotic patients should be included in PTSD treatment. (1) van den Berg DG, de Bont PM, van der Vleugel BM, et al.
