PTSD Treatment for Couples
The Veteran Couples Connect (VCC) program serves veteran couples in Central Texas to treat PTSD in a couples format. Using Cognitive Behavioral Conjoint Therapy for PTSD (CBCT-PTSD), the VCC program provides PTSD treatment to couples in a group setting, with five couples in each cohort. Through the 8-week program, couples will receive in-person group treatment from licensed clinicians. The program provides couples with an introduction to treatment, safety building, and psycho-education about trauma and PTSD.
At the end of the program, couples will receive vouchers for a date night experience to celebrate their hard work, as well as a weekend getaway with other veteran couples. Program staff will evaluate the program to assess the intervention’s effectiveness and to improve programming for veteran couples in future cohorts.
