„ Incorporating Significant Others into Treatment for PTSD”

Online: Zugangscode 947103

There are well documented associations between posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms and intimate relationship difficulties. Aspects of trauma survivors’ interpersonal environments also predict recovery from the disorder. Cognitive-Behavioral Conjoint Therapy for PTSD (CBCT for PTSD; Monson & Fredman, 2012) is a 15-session manualized psychotherapy delivered in a couple/conjoint format with the simultaneous goals of improving PTSD and enhancing relationships. The therapy has been tested in community, veteran, and active duty military samples and has demonstrated efficacy in treating PTSD and comorbid symptoms and enhancing relationship satisfaction. There is also evidence for improvements in patient psychosocial functioning, partner psychological well-being, and parenting efficacy and satisfaction. In this colloquium, Professor Steffany Fredman from Penn State University will describe the theoretical underpinnings of CBCT for PTSD and provide an overview of the treatment, review empirical support for its efficacy, and describe current work on the dissemination of CBCT for PTSD and recent innovations in its delivery to enhance treatment efficiency and scalability. The presentation will conclude with an overview of current and future research on the intersection between PTSD and romantic relationship functioning that continuously informs CBCT for PTSD and its dissemination.
