Cognitive Process Therapy (CPT) Basic Techniques

Cognitive Process Therapy (CPT) is one of many Cognitive Therapies available, however, CPT’s main focus is on providing assistance to those diagnosed with PTSD. CPT requires the therapist have a comfort level for the techniques, knowledge of the basics in CPT and willingness to monitor their own delivery of the techniques for success. CPT has been used with veterans suffering from PTSD. Techniques are similar to those used in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and rely on the client to provide much of the building blocks for recovery.
