Abstract : This is a randomized control trial study that implements prolonged exposure therapy (PE) to military Veterans. We recruited 175 Veterans to participate in the study. Our goal is to compare PE conducted in three different ways: (1) PE that is office-based telehealth (OBT; Veterans come to the clinic to meet with the therapist using videoconferencing technology), (2) PE delivered via home-based telehealth (HBT; Veterans stay at home and meet with the therapist using the computer and video cameras), and (3) PE delivered in home, in person (IHIP; the therapist comes to the Veterans homes for treatment).
