CBT Training

In person CPT training will resume in accordance with UW policy.

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) is an evidence-based cognitive-behavioral therapy for PTSD and related conditions that can be used with individuals or groups.
Multiple randomized clinical trials have found significant effects for CPT in reduction of PTSD symptoms across trauma-exposed populations.
CPT lasts for 12-15 sessions and involves psycho-education; optional written account of the traumatic event; examining patients’ interpretations of traumatic events; and cognitive restructuring of their beliefs that have been disrupted by traumatic events.
