Victims of crime who do not have a trauma or psychiatric history and who have a good support system and reasonable life circumstances and are motivated for treatment are those most likely to benefit from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

When victims present with co-morbid conditions, such as depression and substance abuse issues, treatments for PTSD will need to accommodate these factors.

Interventions need to be tailored to individual circumstances and a variety of compimentary approaches may need to be adopted.
