Factor structures of Complex Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and PTSD in a community sample of refugees from West Papua

The intention to include a category of Complex Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) in ICD-11 has renewed interest in this construct. Although growing evidence from high income countries supports the construct validity of CPTSD, little parallel research has been undertaken across cultures. We tested theoretically supported CPTSD structure (a one-factor, six-factor, one-factor higher-order, and two-factor higher order structure) in a community sample of West Papuan refugees living in a remote town, Kiunga, in Papua New Guinea (PNG).

CONCLUSION: Our analysis found that patients had excellent outcomes across multiple PROM metrics. Future work can build on these results with large patient populations over longer follow-up intervals. Nevertheless, these results provide the foundation and evidence to support the continued use of this innovative technology for total knee arthroplasties.

There is an alarming paucity of new clinical studies for novel treatments for fear-based disorders and in particular posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In the last 2 decades there has been a paradigm shift in exploring pharmacotherapeutics that are not simply static anxiolytics to be taken daily for symptom alleviation but that might instead act at key mechanisms of recovery like fear extinction. Such compounds may enhance natural extinction or be used specifically as adjunctive treatments for extinction-based therapies (e.g., exposure therapy).
