The panel strongly recommends the use of the following psychotherapies/interventions (all interventions that follow listed in alphabetical order) for adult patients with PTSD: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), cognitive processing therapy (CPT), cognitive therapy (CT), and prolonged exposure therapy (PE). The panel suggests the use of brief eclectic psychotherapy (BEP), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and narrative exposure therapy (NET). There is insufficient evidence to recommend for or against offering Seeking Safety (SS) or relaxation (RLX). For medications, the panel suggests offering the following (in alphabetical order): fluoxetine, paroxetine, sertraline, and venlafaxine.
There is insufficient evidence to recommend for or against offering risperidone and topiramate. Based on the updated search, the panel concluded that all of its treatment recommendations, except those for EMDR and NET, were unlikely to change. The panel also concluded that, based on studies published between 2012 and June 2016, the recommendations for EMDR and NET may change from conditional (“the panel suggests”) to strong (“the panel recommends”).
