The intensive therapy did not differ from the standard therapy with regard to PTSD symptom reduction, as measured by within-group pre- to posttreatment effect sizes and as compared with emotion-focused supportive therapy at posttreatment. Participants in both the intensive and standard cognitive therapy received approximately 18 hours of therapy. However, intensive therapy participants completed these hours over a period of 5–7 working days. Treatment days were usually comprised of two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, each lasting from 90 minutes to 2 hours. Of note, treatment credibility and therapeutic alliance was as high in the intensive therapy as in the standard treatment. Intensive treatment of this kind has also been shown to be effective for panic disorder (2), suggesting the generalizability of this approach for some disorders, perhaps for individuals who have a phobia as a core component. The success of intensive cognitive therapy increases service options for patients with PTSD. Certain individuals, as a result of circumstances or by predisposition, may prefer a “total immersion” experience. Those individuals who have work or home responsibilities may find it easier to manage a brief period away from their day-to-day demands. Others may be in a state of “psychological readiness” and will be more motivated for and engaged in an intensive treatment. However, the ease of disseminating intensive forms of treatment remains to be seen. Challenges in the transition from a randomized controlled trial to community implementation need to be considered, and they include the cost of this approach to the community clinic as well as the willingness and availability of therapists to conduct intensive work.
