Prevalence of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Prisoners

Published on

Gergõ Baranyi, Megan Cassidy, Seena Fazel, Stefan Priebe, and Adrian P Mundt conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to estimate prevalence rates of PTSD in prison populations. They concluded that psychosocial interventions to prevent violence, especially against children and women, and to mitigate its consequences in marginalised communities must be improved. Trauma-informed approaches for correctional programmes and scalable PTSD treatments in prisons require further consideration.
