Abstract

Abstract
A systematic review is a comprehensive examination and analysis conducted around a specific topic or research question. Systematic reviews on the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in individuals with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) aim to evaluate the effectiveness and effects of the treatment. This review study, which evaluates the impact of CBT on PTSD, gathers relevant research by scanning the existing literature and analyzes them systematically. By examining the effects, treatment process, and outcomes of CBT on PTSD symptoms, this study provides an evidence-based evaluation.

A systematic review may encompass studies employing different research methods, such as randomized controlled trials, meta-analyses, or observational studies. The results of the study can clarify the impact of CBT on reducing PTSD symptoms, improving functionality, and enhancing quality of life.

This systematic review aims to examine the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) in individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The literature review revealed that CBT is frequently used in the treatment of PTSD, and positive results have been obtained. Research shows that CBT reduces PTSD symptoms and improves individuals' functionality. It has been concluded that CBT is an effective treatment method and plays an important role in reducing PTSD symptoms. However, there may be variations and limitations among studies. Differences have been observed, particularly in factors such as sample sizes, follow-up periods, and study methodologies. The findings of this review support CBT as an effective approach in the treatment of PTSD, but further research and comprehensive studies are needed.
