This systematic literature review, conducted in accordance with PRISMA guidelines, examined findings from studies of psychological interventions and treatments for prenatal PTSD to inform recommendations for future research. Relevant evidence was identified from reference reviews and electronic databases (i.e., PubMed, Google Scholar, PsychInfo, and Scopus). Included studies reported on the effect of nonpharmacological intervention or treatment of PTSD symptomatology delivered during pregnancy, with at least one postintervention follow-up collected during pregnancy to assess prenatal treatment outcomes. The systematic review was augmented with a discussion of lower-level evidence. Of the 954 articles screened, six peer-reviewed, quantitative reports met the inclusion criteria and featured three empirically based interventions, including two randomized controlled trials: Two psychoeducation interventions for PTSD and one treatment study of interpersonal psychotherapy in trauma-exposed pregnant women. Effect sizes for PTSD symptom change ranged from small to large, Cohen's d/ηp2 = 0.16-0.78. No studies examined evidence-based PTSD treatments (e.g., exposure therapy, cognitive processing therapy). A risk of bias assessment indicated variability in study quality. This review demonstrates that research on prenatal PTSD symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment is extremely limited despite a clear link between prenatal PTSD and perinatal complications. Early evidence supports further scientific inquiry into psychoeducation, psychotherapy treatments (e.g., exposure therapy), integrated prenatal care approaches, and community-based approaches.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Meyer, Danie J.</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:creator>Pütz, Ann-Kathrin</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Meyer, Danie J.</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Miller, Michelle L.</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-01-07T10:40:31Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2020-12-19</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>Psychological Intervention and Treatment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder During Pregnancy : A Systematic Review and Call to Action</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:creator>Stevens, Natalie R.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Adams, Natasia</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
