How Cognitive Processing Therapy Can Help
Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) helps by offering new ways to handle distressing thoughts and to gain an understanding of those events. By using the skills learned in CPT therapy, one will develop techniques that enhance recovery from a traumatic event. CPT will help you to understand how a traumatic event changed the way you look at the world, yourself, and others and how it plays a role in how you think, feel and act.
CPT has been shown to be one of the most effective treatments for PTSD and for working with Veterans. Many clinicians at Bedford Counseling Associates are trained for Cognitive Processing Therapy and are able to provide you with the very best in treatment options. Call for a consultation today.
