Research studies have demonstrated that Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), a time-limited, evidence-based psychotherapy, can substantially improve PTSD symptoms. However, research suggests that only a minority of clinicians provide CPT in clinical settings. While training and consultation for clinicians result in skilled delivery of evidence-based treatments, emerging evidence indicates that some form of ongoing support is necessary to promote long-term implementation. The initial CPT Study included workshop training and support of clinicians. The current CPT-II Study will promote CPT use in clinical practice, improve CPT delivery and fidelity to the model resulting in longer-term sustainability.
