Imagery Rescripting in the Treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Following Early Chronic Interpersonal Trauma
Rescripting With vs. Without Prior Stabilization in PTSD Following Early Chronic Interpersonal Trauma

Imagery Rescripting (IR)is a promising treatment for PTSD in adult survivors of early, chronic, interpersonal trauma (e.g. Smucker & Dancu, 1999). So far, this protocol has not been investigated within a controlled setting with patients with PTSD following early, chronic, interpersonal trauma. The aim of the proposed study is to 1. investigate the efficacy of Imagery Rescripting and 2. check whether the efficacy of Imagery Rescripting can be improved by adding a stabilization phase (Skills training in affective and interpersonal regulation, STAIR) prior to this treatment. In a randomized controlled trial three conditions will be compared:

  1. Imagery Rescripting
  2. STAIR + Imagery Rescripting
  3. Wait-list control

Interventional
Phase 2
Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Factorial Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Behavioral: Imagery Rescripting and Reprocessing Therapy
    This intervention is comprised of 16 sessions (twice a week) of trauma-focused imagery rescripting
    Other Name: IRRT
  • Behavioral: STAIR + Imagery Rescripting
    A two-phased treatment. Phase 1 is comprised of 8 (weekly) sessions of Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Skills (STAIR). Phase 2 consists of 16 sessions (twice weekly) of trauma-focused imagery rescripting.
  • Experimental: Imagery Rescripting
    Intervention: Behavioral: Imagery Rescripting and Reprocessing Therapy
  • Active Comparator: STAIR plus Imagery Rescripting
    Intervention: Behavioral: STAIR + Imagery Rescripting
  • No Intervention: Wait-list control
    Participants from this arm are randomized to the two active conditions after 8 weeks of waiting.
