- Brief summaryTraumatic events often cause severe and persisting psychological complaints. About one-fourth of children and adolescents develop PTSD. For more than half of them, the disorder becomes chronic (duration > 6 months). Comorbid disorders include depression, physical complaints and behavioural problems, which can result in developmental delay. It is important to prevent this to occur through early intervention.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy for individuals with Acute Stress Disorder appears to be effective in preventing chronic PTSD. Therefore, early intervention guidelines, suggest that CBT appears to be the most justified early intervention. However, there has been no controlled outcome research on early intervention with children and adolescents.

The objective of this study is to investigate wether early CBT with parental involvement reduces risk of chronic PTSD in children and adolescents with ASD. This study is part of a bigger research-project which aims to predict, explain and prevent PTSD in children and adolescents.

Our study population consist of children and adolescents who expierenced a single traumatic event. Children will be assigned to CBT-group or control-condition (wait-list-controls). Also their parents will be involved in our study, regardless of their involvement in the traumatic event.

Cognitive-behavoir therapy-protocol includes 5 sessions for the children. The program is individual.
