Psychotherapeutic interventions for symptom reduction in veterans with PTSD: A nonrandomized study in a residential clinical setting

Description

Posttraumatic stress dlsorder (PTSD) is the most serious and prevalent of the mental disorders among returning United States combat veterans. As veterans who have sewed in Iraq and Afghanistan join the ranks of combat veterans from prior conflicts the need and availability of evidence-based treatments tor PTSD is increasing. Three psychotherapies for PTSD consistently have been identified in recent meta-analyses as evidence-based treatments for PTSD. Results of the analyses indicate that trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy (CPT), exposurebased therapy (PE) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) are effective. International treatment guidelines for PTSD have the same consensus regarding EMDR, PE and CPT as treatments of choice for PTSD (e.g., APA, 2004; Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense (DoD). 2004).
