Cognitive Processing Therapy
Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) is a cognitive-behavioral evidence based treatment, (approx. 12-15 sessions) for PTSD symptoms. This treatment focuses specifically on thoughts or “stuck points” that are maintaining trauma symptoms. With this approach, you will learn about the relationship between thoughts and emotions, begin to question unhelpful thoughts about the trauma, and then evaluate and modify beliefs related to the trauma. This therapy focuses on themes of safety, trust, power, control, self-esteem, and intimacy.
