Recently published meta-analysis in Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy assessed the efficacy of psychological interventions (mostly Narrative Exposure Therapy) for PTSD and/or depression in adult refugees. Findings from 14 studies showed medium to large effects for PTSD and depression symptoms when compared with passive and active control conditions, with the effects persisting over follow‐up. Despite the variability between studies, the findings suggest that psychological interventions are effective in reducing PTSD and depression symptoms in adult refugees. Worth noting that not all studies reported on the prevalence of PTSD or depression at pre-treatment.
