Publikation: Konferencebidrag uden forlag/tidsskriftPosterFormidling

Resumé

Background: Women exposed to partner and family-related violence (IPV) are at increased risk of developing posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and related mental health problems . Psychological interventions have been found to improve mental health in this population , but women taking residence at Danish shelters, rarely receive such interventions.
Objective: A prospective examination of the mental health among women taking residence at four Danish Women’s Shelters (i.e. every three months with follow-up after relocating).
Method: Data collection is ongoing and aims to include 150 women taking residence at four Danish Women Shelters. The CTS-2 and PMWI helps document the experienced violence, while the ITQ for PTSD and C-PTSD, TSC-26, adjusted-HTQ and WHO-5 measures potential traumatic reactions.
Results: Will present the project along with preliminary results of PTSD and Complex-PTSD among Danish, English and Arabic-speaking women.
Discussion: According to the Istanbul Convention, each European member state is obligated to ensure that victims of IPV have access to psychological counselling, when necessary . Clinical implications and treatment needs will be discussed.
