Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD

As a cognitive-behavioral treatment, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) provides a way to understand why recovery from
traumatic events has been difficult and how symptoms of PTSD affect daily life. The focus is on identifying how your traumatic
experiences changed how you think about things and your current feelings and behaviors. You will identify and challenge
unhelpful thoughts through structured therapy sessions and practice assignments.

  • CPT is effective at treating PTSD for veterans and civilians
  • CPT works well for a variety of traumas, including combat trauma, sexual assault, and domestic violence
  • CPT is a short-term treatment with approximately 12 weekly sessions with your therapist, and includes out-of-session practice assignments

Topics Will Include:

  • The meaning of the traumatic event  
  • The identification of thoughts and feelings
  • Safety issues
  • Trust issues
  • Issues of power and control
  • Esteem issues
  • Intimacy issues
