Cognitive-Behavioral Conjoint Therapy for PTSD Author(s):

Candice Monson, PhD


Research indicates that some Veterans desire family involvement in their treatment for PTSD, due to its impact on the quality of the Veteran's family relationships and social life.

This course provides an overview of Cognitive Behavioral Conjoint Therapy (CBCT) for PTSD, an evidence-based approach for treating PTSD that includes a family member in treatment. The author reviews recent evidence on how this therapy can help Veterans with PTSD. The course also provides an overview of each of the therapy sessions of CBCT.

Goals and Objectives

  • Review research documenting the association between PTSD in intimate relationship problems.
  • Discuss the inclusion of partners in PTSD treatment.
  • Review the main elements of an evidence-based psychotherapy protocol incorporating significant others in PTSD treatment.
