Post-Traumatic Growth and Optimism as Outcomes of an Internet-Based Intervention for Complicated Grief

Door Interapy Nederland | 12-07-2012, Samenvatting
This explorative study examines the effects of an internet-based cognitive-behavioural therapy for complicated grief on post-traumatic growth and optimism. The study is part of a  larger randomized controlled trial described in Wagner, Knaevelsrud, and Maercker  (2006). The patients were randomly assigned to either a treatment group (n526) or a waiting list control condition (n525). The internet-based intervention consisted of exposure to bereavement cues, cognitive reappraisal exercises, and a module on integration and restoration. A short form of the Posttraumatic Growth Inventory (PTGI), the Life Orientation Test-Revised (LOT-R), and measures of complicated grief and psychopathological  outcomes were administered. Results indicate that posttraumatic growth increased in the treatment group. No treatment effect was found for optimism.These findings contribute to the growing literature on personal growth in psychotherapy.
