Secondary prevention of PTSD aims to prevent the establishment of maladaptive cognitive and behavioural patterns.

Commonly used approaches include:

  • critical incident counselling
  • psychological debriefing

Both aproaches encourage cognitive and emotional processing of the traumatic event.

There is no good evidence that secondary prevention of PTSD is effective.
