Summary with Critical Appraisal
What is the clinical effectiveness of e-Therapy interventions for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder?
There is a suggestion that e-Therapy with therapist support when compared to waitlist, treatment as usual, or other active treatment, may be a promising treatment option of managing PTSD symptoms. However, the between group differences were not always statistically significant. Findings need to be interpreted in the light of limitations such as small sample size, variable study quality, and limited quantity of studies for a particular comparison.
