Abstract : Many service members exposed to combat and operational stressors develop posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Evidence-based interventions for treating PTSD, however, were not developed for military trauma and thus may be suboptimal for this population. This study compares Adaptive Disclosure, an intervention for Marines and Sailors with PTSD stemming from deployment experiences, to an empirically supported PTSD treatment. The report details the fifth year of work on this trial, in which we continued recruitment. The Boston team has principally been involved in conducting pre- and post-treatment psychosocial assessments that will be used to determine treatment efficacy.
