Holen, Are Elbert, Thomas European journal of psychotraumatology ; 5 (2014). - 20803 2014-06-16T13:42:11Z Background:<br />Current knowledge is limited regarding patient characteristics related to treatment outcome of posttraumatic stress disorders (PTSD) in refugees and asylum seekers.<br /><br /><br /><br />Objective:<br />Gender, torture status, offender status, level of anger, and level of depression were investigated for possible effects on the treatment outcome.<br /><br /><br /><br />Method:<br />Patient characteristics were explored in 54 refugees and asylum seekers who had completed a treatment program for PTSD. Non-responders (10), those who had the same or higher levels of symptom severity after treatment, were compared with responders, those who had lower symptom severity after treatment (44). Symptom severity was measured by Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale. The non-responders and responders constituted the dichotomous, dependent variable. The independent variables were gender, torture status, offender status, level of anger, and level of depression. T-tests and Exact Unconditional Homogeneity/Independence Tests for 2X2 Tables were used to study the relationship to treatment outcome.<br /><br /><br /><br />Results:<br />Being male and reporting to have been a violent offender were significantly more frequent characteristics among the non-responders compared to the responders. The levels of pretreatment anger, depression and torture status did not affect the treatment outcome.<br /><br /><br /><br />Conclusions:<br />The study adds support to findings that females benefit more from treatment of PTSD than males and that violent offenders are difficult to treat within the standard treatment programs.
