Dissemination and experience with cognitive processing therapy

Kathleen M. Chard, PhD, et al.

Cognitive-behavioral therapies are recommended for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) according to clinical practice guidelines. One of these treatments, cognitive processing therapy (CPT) is a treatment that has been shown to be effective at treating PTSD from a variety of traumatic events. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has implemented an initiative to disseminate CPT as part of a broad effort to make evidenced-based psychotherapies widely available throughout the VA healthcare system. This article provides an overview of CPT and reports on evaluation results from the VA CPT dissemination initiative.
