Abstract

Background. There is robust evidence that psychological therapies are an effective treatment for trauma-related symptoms, including post-traumatic stress disorder. However, there are relatively few studies involving people with intellectual disabilities, and no studies drawing on positive behavioural support as the mechanism for the delivery of treatment.

Discussion. Using positive behaviour support plans as the organisational framework for the adaptation and delivery of both psychological therapies and medication for complex cases is advantageous. Excellent team working is necessary to ensure that interventions are successful.
