CPT, Cognitive Processing Therapy, has helped
many people think more clearly and feel better following a difficult experience or trauma.
CPT typically includes 12 sessions, once or twice a week, and daily homework, so that CPT may be completed in as few as 6 to 12 weeks. Faithfulness with homework correlates with treatment outcome.
The goals of CPT are for you to:
- Consider the impact of the event on what you have been thinking and how you have been feeling.
- Learn to identify and challenge problem thoughts.
- Reduce your distress level about the event.
- Increase your ability to move forward with your life.
Most people have experienced more than one difficult event. To view a brochure on CPT, and what it includes, click here.
