Title: Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD: Does Child Sexual or Physical Abuse Make a Difference?

Audience Level: Basic (casual familiarity with topic area e.g., treated one case)

Presenter(s) and Affiliation(s): Patricia Resick, Ph.D., Women’s Health Sciences Division, National Center for PTSD, Veterans Affairs (VA) Boston Healthcare System and Boston University

Abstract: The purpose of this webinar is to review five studies of cognitive processing therapy (CPT) for PTSD with regard to the efficacy with clients who have a history of child sexual abuse or child physical abuse. Therapists often wonder if trauma-focused therapies are appropriate for clients with childhood trauma histories or whether they need other stabilization therapy before starting to work on their trauma. In the case of these studies, clients were recruited from the community or referred by therapists and had PTSD with or with childhood trauma histories. The webinar will describe the components of CPT and then will describe the studies chronologically including the control conditions for four randomized controlled trials and one program evaluation study conducted at a VA hospital. The webinar will end with a discussion of the implications of these studies, will provide information on resources on CPT and will allow time for audience questions.

You will learn:

  1. the components of CPT
  2. whether PTSD clients with child sexual or physical abuse histories respond to CPT and whether they respond as well as those PTSD clients without such histories
  3. implications of trauma history in treatment planning and some resources for learning CPT.
