Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)


Cognitive Procesing Therapy  (CPT) is a form of cognitive-behavioral 
therapy,  typically  lasting  12  sessions,  and  is also a  research  proven treatment  for  PTSD.  
In  CPT,  symptoms of  PTSD  are  attributed to the stalling-out of the natural process of recovery, preventing individuals from working through their traumatic memories and any resulting problematic thought patterns. CPT focuses on the survivor’s thoughts and feelings about what happened to them, specifically thoughts about the cause and possible prevention of the trauma. Inthis  treatment, cognitive techniques are used to assist clients in challenging those places in their thinking where they have become stuck, unable to move beyond the trauma and its impact.
CPT involves both talking and writing about the trauma and their trauma-related thoughts and emotions. The processes involved in CPT frequently result in decreasing co-occurring depression, as well.
