After completion of diagnosis process and a pre-test, clients were randomly assigned to two groups of intervention and control. PTSD symptoms were assessed by PTSD questionnaire before and after the intervention. The intervention group received ten sessions of life review therapy and the control group was invited to attend treatment sessions after the study and the post-test. None of the members of the two groups took any medication during the study period and they were followed up three months later to check the persistence of the effects.

Findings showed that life review therapy with emphasis on islamic ontology was effective in reducing PTSD symptoms.
