Guilt Reduction vs Cognitive Processing Therapy

for PTSD

Trauma-related guilt is common and impairing among trauma survivors, particularly among Veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The investigators' work shows that a brief treatment targeting trauma-related guilt, Trauma Informed Guilt Reduction Therapy (TrIGR), can reduce guilt and PTSD and depression symptoms. Whether TrIGR is no less effective than longer, more resource heavy PTSD treatments disseminated by by VA, like cognitive processing therapy (CPT), is the next critical question that this study will seek to answer. 158 Veterans across two VA sites will be randomized to TrIGR or CPT to evaluate changes in PTSD, depression, guilt and shame symptoms across the two treatments.

Stellate Ganglion Block

for PTSD

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating condition that affects about 15% of Veterans. Current treatments for Veterans with PTSD include medications and psychological therapies that help to process and desensitize to traumatic events. While effective for many, these treatments do not work for all patients, and many may refuse them. Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB), established to treat pain and other conditions, has shown promise for PTSD: early small studies show it may work fast and greatly reduce symptoms. However, data from larger studies are not clear about SGBs effects. A definitive trial is needed, especially for the Veteran population. This large, well-powered, randomized, sham-controlled trial of SGB for PTSD will assess the short-term efficacy of this intervention, the durability of the effects and the safety of the treatment. Additionally, this study will provide critically important information about biological effects of SGB and potential mechanisms of action. This timely study is critical to help VA clinicians better decide about the merits of SGB for PTSD.
