In the most recent VA/DoD clinical practice guidelines, CPT is cited as one of the first-line treatments for PTSD. In this session, Dr. Michael will explain the theory and practice of CPT. In the morning, Dr. Michael will explain the cognitive theory of PTSD. Then he will describe the elements of this treatment approach in depth. Additionally, Dr. Michael will speak specifically to the use of CPT with Veterans and share insights about Veteran-specific PTSD cognitions that often arise in Veteran-specific PTSD and ways to address those in treatment.
