Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) is an evidence-based form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) used to treat PTSD. CPT is a 12-session manualized program that focuses on challenging beliefs and assumptions related to the trauma, oneself, and the world. Sessions will be conducted twice weekly for six weeks; each session is 90 minutes.

Present Centered Therapy (PCT) is a supportive group intervention typically used within the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare systems to address problems of veterans with PTSD (Rosen, et al., 2004). PCT focuses on problem-solving current difficulties that may be related to past traumatic events, but does not address specific memories or cognitions about the trauma. Sessions will be conducted twice weekly for 6 weeks; sessions are 90 minutes.
- Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Checklist-Stressor-specific Version (PCL-S) [ Time Frame: Baseline, weekly during treatment, posttreatment, 6-month and 12-month follow-up ]PCL-S measures symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder in response to a specific stressor.
- Beck Depression Inventory-II [ Time Frame: Baseline, weekly during treatment, posttreatment, 6-month, and 12-month follow-up ]The BDI-II is one of the most widely used instruments for measuring the severity of depressive symptoms. It consists of 21 items that assess both affective and somatic symptoms related to depression and depressive disorders. Each item is composed of four statements that reflect symptom severity. The statements are scaled from 0 (no disturbance) to 3 (maximal disturbance). Scores on all items are summed to obtain a total severity score.
