Open Recruitment Trial of Cognitive Behavioral Conjoint Therapy and Cognitive Processing Therapy
The purpose of this treatment trial is two-fold: to decrease individual PTSD symptoms, as well as enhance relationships.

Individuals will either receive Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), a specific type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that has been effective in reducing symptoms of PTSD that have developed after experiencing a variety of traumatic events including, child abuse, combat, rape and natural disasters.

The other treatment option is Cognitive-Behavioral Conjoint Therapy (CBCT), a dyadic treatment that involves two people in an intimate or non-intimate relationship. While treating PTSD, it has the benefit of simultaneously improving relationship functioning and the health and well-being of close significant others’ PTSD.

Also it is required that the participant currently resides in Ontario, Canada.
