Help in hand after traumatic events: a randomized controlled trial in health care professionals on the efficacy, usability, and user satisfaction of a self-help app to reduce trauma-related symptoms

Christianne A. I. van der Meer, Anne Bakker, Mirjam van Zuiden, Anja Lok & Miranda Olff
Background: Despite the fact that many people are affected by trauma and suffer from posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS) there is a lack of easy-accessible interventions to self-manage these symptoms. Mobile apps may deliver low-intensity self-help to reduce trauma-related symptoms and empower individuals following trauma, such as high-risk professionals who are regularly exposed to potentially traumatic events. In this randomized controlled trial, we examined the efficacy, and evaluated the usability and user satisfaction of the app...

Sexual function and pelvic floor activity in women: the role of traumatic events and PTSD symptoms

Matty D. A. Karsten, Vincent Wekker, Anne Bakker, Henk Groen, Miranda Olff, Annemieke Hoek, Ellen T. M. Laan & Tessa J. Roseboom
Traumatic sexual experiences can negatively affect sexual functioning and increase pelvic floor activity in women, especially when post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is developed. However, little is known about the effect of other types of interpersonal and non-interpersonal, traumatic experiences on sexual function and pelvic floor overactivity. The aim of this study was to examine the effects of lifetime traumatic experiences and subsequent PTSD symptoms on sexual function and pelvic floor activity and to investigate whether...

Cortisol awakening response over the course of humanitarian aid deployment: a prospective cohort study

Yulan Qing, Mirjam van Zuiden, Cynthia Eriksson, Barbara Lopes Cardozo, Winnifred Simon, Alastair Ager, Leslie Snider, Miriam Lewis Sabin, Willem Scholte, Reinhard Kaiser, Bas Rijnen & Miranda Olff
Background: Internationally deployed humanitarian aid (HA) workers are routinely confronted with potentially traumatic stressors. However, it remains unknown whether HA deployment and related traumatic stress are associated with long-term changes in hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis function. Therefore, we investigated whether cortisol awakening response (CAR) decreased upon deployment and whether this was moderated by previous and recent trauma exposure and parallel changes in symptom severity and perceived social support. Methods: In this prospective study, n = 86...

Early posttraumatic autonomic and endocrine markers to predict posttraumatic stress symptoms after a preventive intervention with oxytocin

Sinha Engel, Mirjam van Zuiden, Jessie. L. Frijling, Saskia B. J. Koch, Laura Nawijn, Rinde L. W. Yildiz, Sarah Schumacher, Christine Knaevelsrud, Jos A. Bosch, Dick J. Veltman & Miranda Olff
Efficient prevention of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) needs to target individuals with an increased risk for adverse outcome after trauma. Prognostic or prescriptive biological markers assessed early posttrauma may inform personalized treatment recommendations. To test prognostic and prescriptive effects of early (posttraumatic) autonomic and endocrine markers on PTSD symptom development. Autonomic and endocrine markers were assessed within 12 days posttrauma and before treatment initiation within a randomized placebo-controlled trial investigating repeated oxytocin administration as preventive...
