Exposure Therapy for Veterans With PTSD and Panic Attacks

2014-07-23 21:11:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To evaluate the acceptability and efficacy of Multiple Channel Exposure Therapy-Veterans (MCET-V) as a treatment for returning service members with comorbid PTSD and panic disorder. MCET-V will be compared to Cognitive Processing Therapy, a standard PTSD treatment

Description

With the increasing number of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom (OIF/OEF) veterans returning from war-zone areas, many will experience anxiety disorders such as PTSD and comorbid problems. Currently, about one in every six OIF/OEF veterans experiences PTSD and co-occurring PD. Although effective treatments exist for treating one or the other, we do not yet have treatments that can simultaneously target PTSD and PD. This study is the first systematic investigation of a time-limited cognitive-behavioral treatment for veterans with specific comorbid anxiety problems. Data obtained from this study will provide valuable information toward improving treatments for comorbid problems.
