Access from EThOS:
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating anxiety disorder effecting an individual's occupational and social functioning. Psychological theories have attempted to explore the underlying mechanisms that are thought to be involved in the development and maintenance of PTSD. From these theories several treatment approacherhavrbeen developed with the majority relying on exposure. To date the effectiveness of exposure treatment has not been surpassed but outcomes vary, with room for improvement. Few studies have examined predictors of change. The study reported here compared a new treatment metacognitive therapy (MCT) with exposure therapy (EXP) and waitlist control condition (WL) and assessed psychological predictors' of treatment outcome.
