This study examines the efficacy of two cognitive-behavioral treatments for PTSD-related recurrent nightmares and other sleep difficulties in Veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom OEF and Operation Iraqi Freedom OIF in a randomized controlled trial. Participants were 108 OEFOIF Veterans in outpatient treatment for PTSD at one of two study sites, the Corporal Michael J. Crescenz VAMC CMCVAMC Philadelphia or the VACHS, West Haven, CT. During the final year of this award, data collection was completed at the Philadelphia sites CMCVAMC and CMCVAMC affiliated outpatient clinics. We have now analyzed outcome and ancillary data. Several poster presentations have been completed, and manuscripts and symposia are in preparation.
