Effectiveness of a brief group psychological intervention for women in a post-conflict setting in Pakistan: A single-blind, cluster, randomized controlled trial

The Lancet Apr 05, 2019

Rahman A, et al. - In this trial, investigators compared 306 women assigned to an intervention group with 306 women allocated to an enhanced usual care group in order to determine the impact of a brief group psychological intervention in a conflict-affected setting in rural Swat, Pakistan. Significantly lower mean total scores on the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale were observed in the intervention group vs control group at 3 months. They reported clinically significant decreases in anxiety as well as depressive symptoms at 3 months. The investigators, therefore, suggested that psychological intervention might be an effective choice for women experiencing psychological distress in rural post-conflict settings.
