Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for PTSD is a 12-session, evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to treat PTSD in individual and group settings. CPT directly and profoundly targets PTSD symptoms. Endorsed by the U.S. Departments of Veteran Affairs and Defense, it has been found effective for PTSD related to sexual, combat, and military, as well as other civilian and childhood traumas. As a CBT intervention, it helps clients identify their thoughts and feelings and consider how they view themselves, others, and the world in the wake of trauma.
This webinar will introduce participants to CPT, its components, and include illustrative examples of its use in treatment with both older adolescents and adults.
More specifically, this webinar will:
provide an overview of CPT, social cognitive theory of PTSD, and the evidence base supporting CPT’s efficacy
discuss the application of CPT with a range of traumas for adults and older adolescents
