Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD

The authoritative presentation of cognitive processing therapy (CPT) for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is now in a revised and updated second edition, with an easier-to-use format and a new chapter on conceptualizing treatment. From CPT's developers, the manual includes session-by-session implementation guidelines and extensive sample dialogues. Shaded index tabs in the margins help clinicians quickly navigate to each session. The authors explain the theoretical and empirical underpinnings of CPT and discuss ways to work effectively with specific populations, such as combat veterans, sexual assault survivors, and culturally diverse and LGBTQIA+ clients. Forty reproducible handouts can be photocopied from the large-size book or downloaded from the companion webpage.
