Abstract :
[en] Aim of the study: Years after being victims of a bank robbery, bank clerks still suffer from severe symptoms of post-traumatic stress. As a result of this problem, a preventive intervention program me to reduce post-traumatic stress was established and evaluated for the Luxembourgish financial sector. Methods and collective: The study describes the measures carried out after a hold-up. Using non-parametric data evaluation, the effects of the intervention program me were examined for the treatment group (n= 43) and compared with a control group (n= 29). Results: The symptoms of post-traumatic stress were significantly reduced in the group which received crisis intervention and stress debriefing. Conclusions: These results are the first evidence of the effectiveness of the multi-component programme.
