This integrative review explores the current state of knowledge on trauma-focused interventions with resilience as the outcome. The review synthesized the results of 17 intervention studies. Findings of the review demonstrate the importance of including resilience as an outcome measure for the effectiveness of trauma-focused interventions. Findings also provide preliminary evidence that effective trauma-focused interventions both reduce posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms and improve resilience. Further research should include a focus on developing interventions based on established theoretical frameworks, and using resilience outcome measurement tools appropriate to the interventions and the characteristics of the target population. © 2018 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
