Interapy vs Waitlist

DescriptionStatementStatements and Statistics
severity of post- treatment PTSD symptoms using self-report IESs1xThere is evidence favouring interapy over waitlist on reducing severity of PTSD symptoms as measured by self-report IES at endpoint (k = 1; n = 101; SMD = −1.32; 95% CI, −1.77 to −0.86). I
post-treatment depression symptoms using self report SCL- 90s1xThere is evidence favouring interapy over waitlist on reducing depression symptoms as measured by self report SCL-90 at endpoint (k = 1; n = 101; SMD = −1.06; 95% CI, −1.51 to −0.62). I
post-treatment anxiety symptoms using self report SCL- 90s2xThere is limited evidence favouring interapy over waitlist on reducing anxiety symptoms as measured by self report SCL-90 at endpoint (k = 1; n = 101; SMD = −0.81; 95% CI, −1.24 to −0.37). I
the likelihood of leaving the study prior to endpoint for any reasons4The evidence is inconclusive and so it is not possible to determine if there is a clinically important difference between interapy and waitlist on reducing the likelihood of leaving the study prior to endpoint for any reason (k = 1; n = 184; RR = 0.9; 95% CI, 0.65 to 1.25).
