Symposium

Symposium 42 - The Role of Trauma-Related Cognitions in PTSD

Friday, November 17
1:45 PM - 3:15 PM
Location: Sapphire Ballroom E & F, Level 4, Sapphire Level

Keywords: PTSD (Posttraumatic Stress Disorder) | Cognitive Schemas / Beliefs | Therapy Process
Presentation Type: Symposium

Several theorists and researchers have highlighted the important role that cognitions play in the development, maintenance, and treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD; e.g., LoSavio, Dillon, & Resick, 2017).  In this symposium, we will discuss four new studies that shed light on this topic across a range of diverse contexts.  We include studies from active duty military, veteran, and community samples and both treatment and non-treatment settings.  This symposium will cover 1) expectancies about the future as a predictor of PTSD development, 2) guilt cognitions as a link between PTSD and suicidal ideation, 3) negative beliefs as a predictor of trajectory of change during treatment, and 4) changes in blame cognitions as a predictor of PTSD symptom change during treatment.  Taken together, these studies continue to highlight the many ways in which cognition impacts PTSD diagnosis, co-morbidity, and treatment outcome.
