Reco NICE : Les personnes à risque de stress post-traumatique devraient bénéficier d'un thérapie dans le mois qui suit le trauma

he updated guidance gives recommendations on preventing and manging PTSD. Adults who are at risk of PTSD  should be offered individualised cognitive-behavioural therapy within a month of experiencing a stressful event. Children can be considered for group therapy after shared trauma to reduce the risk of developing PTSD, the guidance says.

Professor Mark Baker, director for the centre of guidelines at NICE, said: “PTSD is a treatable condition but the pain of revisiting past events can prevent people seeking the help they need. We have updated our guidance to make sure that PTSD is managed as early as possible and give advice on coordinating the complex needs that are often associated with this condition.”

PTSD is an anxiety disorder associated with a range of catastrophic, frightening or stressful events. Approximately a quarter of people who experience one of these situations will develop PTSD-related symptoms. These can include vivid flashbacks, increased anxiety and difficulty sleeping.

The draft guidance , which is now open for consultation, will replace the original NICE PTSD guideline  which was published in 2005.
