Between disasters, interpersonal violence, and combat experiences, traumatic events are common in modern life. Fortunately most people recover on their own or with help from family and friends, but some develop posttraumatic stress disorder. Left untreated, PTSD can drastically impair the quality of life for sufferers and their loved ones, and can result in substance abuse or suicide. One of the most effective evidence-based treatments for PTSD is Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), a 12-session cognitive behavioral treatment. CPT is predominantly a cognitive therapy that can be implemented with or without a smaller exposure component than imaginal exposure therapy and is therefore more acceptable to many clients and practitioners seeking alternatives to purely exposure-focused treatments. It also directly targets associated problems such as depression, guilt, and anger. Originally developed for rape and sexual assault, CPT has been successfully applied to veterans, refugees, and survivors of other traumas.

This two-day professional training in Cognitive Processing Therapy was sponsored by the New York State Office of Mental Health and was offered by the Institute for Disaster Mental Health at SUNY New Paltz on March 25 and 26, 2010. The training was led by the developer of CPT, Patricia A. Resick, Ph.D. Dr. Resick is the Director of the Women’s Health Sciences Division of the National Center for PTSD at the VA Boston Healthcare System.  She is also a Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology at Boston University, and was the 2009 President of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies. Attendance at this training prepared practitioners to implement CPT with trauma survivors. It also provided attendees with practical and useful materials and resources.
