This treatment program adapts the principles of Dr. Foa's proven effective Prolonged Exposure Therapy for adolescents suffering from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD.) The treatment program is based on the principles of prolonged exposure and emotional processing for use with those individuals who suffer from PTSD. In vivo and imaginal exposure comprise the core of the treatment, along with breathing retraining and techniques for monitoring progress.

The treatment is presented in modules that can be individually tailored to fit the needs of each patient. Because many adolescent PTSD sufferers do not initiate therapy on their own, but are referred to therapy by social workers, parents, or other authority figures, their willingness to participate in their treatment can vary widely. The first element of this treatment, serves to assess the client's attitude, and increase motivation to change. Other modules introduce psychoeducation, real-life exposure, emotional processing, and relapse prevention. This companion workbook provides additional information, monitoring forms, and worksheets to help clients take control of their treatment.


"This is a well developed, thorough protocol for the treatment of PTSD in adolescent victims of trauma...As expected from these authors, the program is well grounded in empirically supported methods of trauma exposure...The manual is developmentally sensitive and provides guidance for the therapist in working with adolescents. There are excellent handouts and case examples throughout the manual." --Anne Marie Albano, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Columbia University/New York State Psychiatric Institute
