Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether a newly developed, brief cognitive behavioral intervention, relative to supportive counseling, is effective in reducing acute stress disorder (ASD) and preventing post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression.

Description

Importance: Burns are painful, life threatening and disfiguring. Severe psychological distress, pain and sleep disturbance are among the most common, enduring and disabling of secondary complications, however, no evidence based treatments exists for these complex problems in the acute burn care setting.

Design: Randomized, controlled effectiveness trial, group assignment blinded to baseline status, groups stratified by history of pre-existing psychiatric disorder.

Objectives. To develop the Safety, Meaning, Activation and Resilience Training (SMART) protocol; To evaluate its short and long-term effectiveness, relative to viable placebo, Supportive Counseling (SC), in improving key dependent measures (e.g., ASD, PTSD), mediators, and, enhancing health and function outcomes.

Setting: A leading edge, State-dedicated, regional burn center in a major, metropolitan teaching hospital serving diverse residents from large urban settings, small towns and remote rural areas.

Interventions: SMART (focused cognitive-behavioral therapy with training in anxiety management, and treatment with prolonged exposure and cognitive restructuring) will be contrasted with SC (non-directive empathy, warmth, positive regard).

Primary Outcome Measures: Health (psychological distress, sleep, pain), function (physical, psychological, social), costs (direct and indirect).

By definition it cannot last longer than 1 month, if it persists, a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (STRESS DISORDERS, POST-TRAUMATIC) is more appropriate.

A class of traumatic stress disorders with symptoms that last more than one month. There are various forms of post-traumatic stress disorder, depending on the time of onset and the duration of these stress symptoms. In the acute form, the duration of the symptoms is between 1 to 3 months. In the chronic form, symptoms last more than 3 months. With delayed onset, symptoms develop more than 6 months after the traumatic event.

A direct form of psychotherapy based on the interpretation of situations (cognitive structure of experiences) that determine how an individual feels and behaves. It is based on the premise that cognition, the process of acquiring knowledge and forming beliefs, is a primary determinant of mood and behavior. The therapy uses behavioral and verbal techniques to identify and correct negative thinking that is at the root of the aberrant behavior.

Contextually focused form of cognitive behavioral psychotherapy that uses MINDFULNESS and behavioral activation to increase patients' psychological flexibility in areas such as ability to engage in values-based, positive behaviors while experiencing difficult thoughts, emotions, or sensations.
