Adaptive Disclosure: A Combat-Specific PTSD Treatment
Annual rept. 30 Sep 2012-29 Sep 2013
BOSTON VA RESEARCH INST MA
Pagination or Media Count:
Many service members exposed to combat and operational stressors develop post-traumatic 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 third year of work on this trial in which we completed all legalregulatory hurdles and began recruitment. The Boston team has principally been involved in conducting pre-and post-treatment psychological assessments that will be used to determine treatment efficacy.
