Service Description

Cognitive processing therapy (CPT) is a cognitive- behavioral treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and related problems. The overall goals of CPT are to improve your PTSD symptoms, and any associated symptomsyou may have (such as depression, anxiety, guilt, or shame). It also aims to improve your dayto-day living. CPT in this clinic consists of 6–24 individual (one-on-one) therapy sessions; the average is 12. Each session lasts 50–60 minutes. In these sessions, you will learn about the symptoms of PTSD and the reasons why some people develop it. You and your therapist will also identify and explore how your trauma or traumas have changed your thoughts and beliefs, and how some of these ways of thinking may keep you “stuck” in your symptoms. CPT does not involve repeatedly reviewing the details of your trauma(s). However, you will be asked to examine your experiences in order to understand how they have affectedyour thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
