It is urgent to make evidence-based treatments EBTs for military personnel readily accessible in order to meet the growing demand for effective and efficient treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD in a timely manner. Web-treatments represent an innovative way to overcome barriers to accessing care. The purpose of this randomized controlled trial is to compare the efficacy of 10 sessions of a web-version of Prolonged Exposure PE, Web-PE, delivered over 8-weeks to 10 sessions of Present Centered Treatment PCT delivered over 8-weeks by a therapist in 120 active duty military personnel with PTSD. Up to 170 individuals will be consented to obtain data from 120 for analysis. Participants will be assessed at pre-treatment, mid-treatment, and 1-, 3- and 6-months after treatment completion.
