- Brief summaryAlthough around 50% of patients with PTSD can be treated effectively, but the treatment of patients with complex (multiple and long term ) trauma is less successful. Verbal interventions not always lead to sufficient insight as this can be blocked by the loss of contact with one’s own body and the lack of recognition and expression of emotions. In many occasions serious psychosomatic complaints remain. To address these problems with recognizing and regulating emotions a body oriented intervention was developed to be offered in the first phase of treatment. Aim of the study is to gain insight in the results of a new intervention and to compare these with the results of the treatment for complex PTSD as it is now offered . It is also our goal to gain information on how patient characteristics and differences in the kind of treatment have an effect on the results in regular treatment. Quasi experimental design encompassing two separate studies A) In the first observational study patients in specialized trauma centers will be followed for 8 months during regular treatment and B) In an intervention study that follows this observational study only patients that participate in a new group intervention offered by psychomotor therapists will be followed. Comparison of the outcomes in both studies will be made. Outcome measures are trauma related symptoms, dissociation and general psychological wellbeing. To gain insight in how the intervention works also data is gathered on body attitude, body awareness and mastery. Participants in the new module are asked to evaluate the intervention and their therapist.
