Treatment Response, Efficacy, Accessibility, and Timing (TREAT) Lab

Led by Dr. Philip Held, the TREAT Lab researches how to make treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) better, quicker, and more accessible. 

The TREAT Lab focuses on providing intensive, evidence-based treatments to those who have experienced traumatic events. Our treatment programs are intertwined with our research which aim to track individual progress throughout and following treatment. The goal is to one day be able to further tailor treatments and match an individual with the type and length of treatment in which they are most likely to succeed given their experiences.

We examine how different formats of intensively-delivered Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) can help those with PTSD feel better. CPT is an evidence-based psychotherapy developed for PTSD that has been proven effective at reducing the symptoms of PTSD and depression. Our goal is to develop briefer and more accessible treatments so more people can benefit from them.
