Applying and Understanding Cognitive Processing Therapy as Treatment for PTSD

Presented by
Greg Stanford, Psy.D. & Emily Owens, Ph.D.

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) is a cognitive-behavioral treatment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Evidence over the past several decades has shown that CPT is effective in reducing PTSD symptoms related to a variety of traumatic events including child abuse, rape, combat, and natural disasters, making CPT a "best practice" for PTSD. CPT Coach is a free application (app) for mobile devices developed by the VA's National Center for PTSD. CPT Coach was created to increase convenience and adherence for patients and clinicians working through the CPT treatment manual. It is intended to be used as a treatment companion for a patient working with a therapist trained in CPT. Licensed psychologists Greg Stanford, Psy.D. and Emily Owens, Ph.D. will describe the evidence supporting CPT as a treatment approach for PTSD, as well as an overview of the theoretical basis of CPT. The webinar will include an instruction on the application of the protocol using the CPT Coach app to an individual with PTSD.
