CPT is essentially a more focused form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or (CBT). CBT focuses on identifying a clear goal; gaining perspective on thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are problematic in achieving the said goal; and working on restructuring your thinking to filter out the untrue negative thoughts that are not helping you. CPT takes a very similar approach, but is specifically tailored to people experiencing PTSD or trauma. This trauma can be from military service, first-responder experiences, childhood abuse, rape, natural disasters, or any other event perceived as traumatic for the person experiencing it.
According to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, “CPT teaches you how to evaluate and change the upsetting thoughts you have had since your trauma. By changing your thoughts, you can change how you feel.” Much like standard CBT, CPT provides you with the tools and perspective necessary to cope with trauma and the harmful thoughts and behaviors that can surround it. CPT is well known in the behavioral health community for its effectiveness in treating PTSD and trauma.
