Abstract

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) refers to a series of mental disorders that occur after patients suffer
sudden, catastrophic and threatening attacks. PTSD, also known as delayed psychogenic response, is a disease
characterized by delay and persistence. To explore the effect of cognitive psychological intervention on selfresilience
of patients with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 120 patients with post-traumatic stress disorder
diagnosed by 17 screening questionnaires (PCL-C) were divided into observation group (n=60) and control
group (n=60) by drawing lots. The control group received routine psychiatric nursing, while the observation
group received cognitive psychological intervention on the basis of the control group for 6 months. The changes
of post-traumatic stress disorder score, self-resilience score and coping style score before and after intervention
were compared and analyzed between the two groups. Results The PTSD score of the observation group was
significantly lower than that of the control group, while the self-resilience score of the observation group was
higher than that of the control group (P < 0.05). After intervention, the scores of escape, palliation, fate and selfreliance
in the observation group were lower than those in the control group (P < 0.05), while the scores of face,
optimism, emotional catharsis and seeking support were higher than those in the control group (P < 0.05).
Cognitive psychological intervention can effectively improve the self-resilience of patients with post-traumatic
stress disorder, enable patients to cope with the disease in a positive way, help improve the clinical symptoms of
patients, improve the quality of life of patients.
