Cognitive Processing Trauma Therapy (CPT)

Cognitive processing therapy is a specialized type of cognitive trauma healing therapy used to treat patients with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A typical 12-session period has been shown to reduce trauma in sexual assault victims, and children who have experienced abuse or trauma. The main focus of CPT is to recon textualize and help rationalize the traumatic events experienced by the victim.
