Couple and family therapies for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

The objectives of this review will be to:

  1. assess the efficacy of couple and family therapies for adult PTSD, relative to 'no treatment' conditions, 'standard care', and structured or non-specific individual psychological therapies;
  2. examine the clinical characteristics of studies that influence the relative efficacy of these therapies; and
  3. critically evaluate methodological features of studies that bias research findings.

This is a protocol.
