The National Center for PTSD tries to keep all professionals up-to-date with the latest in trauma research and how it can be applied.

CTU-Online includes brief updates on the latest clinically relevant research. Content on treatment and assessment is emphasized. Publications on other topics are included if the content has significant clinical implications. Issues include an ID number so you can find the article in the PILOTS database and a link to the abstract or full article, if you have access through your library privileges.*

*Problems Accessing full text? VA clinicians might have privileges through their university affiliation. However, VA firewalls sometimes block the permissions to access reference materials. If you cannot access the Full Text version of any article, we suggest you contact your local librarian or web/Internet technical person.

If you usually have access to full text from the journal in which an article is published, but are not seeing it from the link provided, try accessing it directly through your university library system. Many online services have password access that only works through a user's library system.

CTU-Online is published by the Executive Division of the National Center for PTSD in White River Junction, VT. We welcome feedback from readers about content and format. Please feel free to email us at
