Treating post-traumatic stress disorder by resource activation in Cambodia

Description

There is a need for effective, low-threshold psychotherapeutic treatments in post-conflict settings1. However, systematic outcome research on site is still extremely rare. To address this problem we integrated rigorous research procedures into a humanitarian program, the so called Mekong Project, and conducted a randomized controlled trial for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in Cambodia. In short, the Mekong Project aims at establishing independent psychotherapeutic services in several Southeast Asian countries via the systematic training of local health professionals and offering free of charge psychological help to traumatized civilians.
