Cognitive Processing Therapy


This Web site was made possible by the U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (Award No. N00189-08-P-ZA85), Connie L. Best, Ph.D., Project Director, and CAPT Robert L. Koffman, Director, Deployment Health, CAPT Richard Bergthold, Deputy Director Deployment Health, and LCDR Richard Masannat, TelePsychological Health, Program Manager and Project Officer, Navy BUMED Project Staff.

This Web site represents the joint efforts of a large group of people. We would like to thank all who have made contributions to the Web site.

We are very grateful to the many colleagues, psychology interns, post-doctoral fellows, staff at the DVA, and members of the U.S. military who helped us in the film demonstrations and still photography. None of the individuals portrayed as patients in this Web site were actual patients; rather they were health care professionals who work with patients being treated for PTSD. We are appreciative to their extraordinary efforts to make the video demonstrations representative of military and veteran patients.

Alexandra Macdonald, Ph.D.
William Breen, Ph.D.
LCDR Raymond Narin, Ph.D.
