Event description

Description

A wealth of research has documented the interpersonal effects of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), where Veterans with PTSD and their loved ones interact to have an effect on one another’s emotional and relationship health. Most prior evidence-based treatments for PTSD have been individual therapies, which may have less direct impact on the Veteran’s romantic relationship and home environment.

Cognitive Behavioral Conjoint Therapy (CBCT) for PTSD is an evidence-based psychotherapy that addresses the interpersonal nature of PTSD. CBCT for PTSD uses cognitive-behavioral principles to reduce PTSD symptoms, improve relationship satisfaction, and reduce distress in partners. This training will provide an introduction to this innovative treatment, beginning with background on the rationale for couples-based PTSD treatment, providing an overview of the therapy, and discussing the considerations of utilizing this therapy with Veterans and their loved ones. Case examples and group exercises will be used to illustrate the use of this therapy. Participants will leave the training with a better understanding of the interpersonal effects of PTSD and the manner in which relationships can be strengthened and used to improve PTSD symptoms.
