Effective interventions for PTSD are necessary but ensuring that individuals can access them and find them acceptable is a high priority. This systematic review recently published in the Journal of Affective Disorders Reports examined dropout from guideline-recommended trauma-focussed therapy for PTSD, including EMDR, Prolonged Exposure, and Cognitive Processing Therapy. The overall dropout rate for these treatments was 20%, with a higher rate for individuals who had experienced military trauma. Of interest, these individuals were most likely to dropout prior to commencement of therapy, which suggests that more in-depth explanation of therapy for military personal and veterans may be required.
