Helping Clients Choose Between CPT and CPT-C

​Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) can be delivered with a written trauma account (CPT) or without a written Account (CPT-Cognitive Only, or CPT-C). In this video, a description of both CPT and CPT-C are discussed with the client. Of note is how the therapist uses questions to elicit information and engage the client in deciding which approach to use.​ Please note that this expert demonstration usese terminology from the CPT Therapist's Manual published in 2014. The updated terminology for CPT formats is "CPT" (does not include the written trauma account) and "CPT+A" (includes the written trauma account).
