Abstract (Summary)

A significant number of veterans must face various military traumas, as evidenced by the 200,000 veterans receiving an average of $20,000 in disability benefits for PTSD in 2006. Yet, literature remains quiet limited as far as the efficacy of different treatments for PTSD and the limitations of the studies suggest caution in regarding conclusions about outcomes. This thesis sought to provide a critical review of psychosocial intervention research from the years 2000 to 2010 for veterans with PTSD, resulting in the examination of 17 published studies. The studies are organized into a few primary categories: cognitive processing therapy, exposure and exposure-like therapies, present centered therapy, skill building focused CBT, and multimodal therapies.
