Resumen

ESCUDERO, Sara et al. Videoconference-delivered psychological treatment for a victim of terrorism with posttraumatic stress disorder and other comorbid emotional disorders 30 years after the terrorist attack. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.1, pp.21-26. ISSN 2174-0550.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5093/clysa2018a4.

This paper shows the effectiveness or clinical utility of trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral treatment (TF-CBT) that was delivered by videoconference in a 52 year old patient who was victim of a terrorist attack 30 years ago and suffered from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) comorbid with major depressive disorder (MDD), social phobia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). After 36 sessions, a clinically significant decrease in posttraumatic, depressive and anxious symptomatology was obtained and remained stable in the long term. TF-CBT delivered by videoconference seems to be effective when is used with victims of terrorism suffering from PTSD and comorbid emotional disorders in the very long term, although comorbidity and chronicity seem to require an increase in the number of treatment sessions.
