Predictors of Outcome and Residual Symptoms Following
Trauma-Focused Psychotherapy in Police Officers With
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

Police officers exposed to potentially traumatic events (PTE) are at a heightened risk of developing posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Little is known about trauma-focused psychotherapy outcomes in the police. In this naturalistic study, we evaluated whether PTE exposure and baseline clinical characteristics predicted PTSD symptom reduction during treatment and residual PTSD symptoms posttreatment.
In consecutive referrals to a specialized mental health service for police officers (N = 665), PTSD was measured pre- and posttreatment using structured clinical interviews. Treatment consisted of brief eclectic psychotherapy for PTSD. We grouped PTE as follows: injury/maltreatment, loss (colleague or private), other job-related, other private traumatic events. Data were analyzed multi variably using structural equation modeling and logistic regression. Treatment effect size was large, d=3.6, 95% CI [3.4, 3.8]. The police officer who reported
more injury/maltreatment or private traumatic had more baseline PTSD symptoms as well as larger symptom reduction during treatment; police officers who reported more losses of loved ones showed smaller PTSD symptom reduction. Concentration problems persisted in 17.7% of police officers posttreatment, and these were predicted by baseline PTSD symptoms and loss of loved ones. Proportions of variance explained by the multivariable models ranged from 0.08 to 0.14. Our findings increase insight into the type of PTE and clinical
characteristics of police officers with PTSD who benefit most from trauma-focused treatment. Because the loss of loved ones can be presumed to have a profound impact on social and interpersonal functioning, a more specific treatment focus on grief processes may further enhance
efficacy.

In deze 4 daagse BEPP zijn de werkzame elementen uit verschillende therapierichtingen op een logische manier samengebracht, zoals psycho-educatie, imaginaire exposure, gebruikmaking van brieven schrijven en memorabilia, psychodynamische inzichten in de betekenisfase en een afscheidsritueel. Deze cursus omvat daarom meer dan traumagerichte cognitieve gedragstherapie.

BEP-TG is een individuele behandeling die gericht is op verwerking van het traumatische verlies van een dierbare, d.w.z. verlies van een dierbare onder gewelddadige omstandigheden. Wij spreken van traumatische rouw indien nabestaanden na traumatisch verlies van een dierbare langdurige klachten ontwikkelen van rouw, posttraumatische stress en/of depressie.

Following its detailed review and independent analysis of the findings of the systematic review, the APA Guideline Development Panel (GDP) strongly recommends the use of the following psychotherapies/interventions (all interventions that follow listed in alphabetical order) for adult patients with PTSD: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)2, cognitive processing therapy (CPT), cognitive therapy (CT), and prolonged exposure therapy (PE). The panel suggests the use of brief eclectic psychotherapy (BEP), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and narrative exposure therapy (NET). There is insufficient evidence to recommend for or against offering Seeking Safety (SS) or relaxation (RLX). For medications, the panel suggests offering the following (in alphabetical order): fluoxetine, paroxetine, sertraline, and venlafaxine. There is insufficient evidence to recommend for or against offering risperidone and topiramate,
