CPT Coach is for Veterans, Service members, and others with PTSD who are participating in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) with a professional mental healthcare provider. This app contains support materials for a complete course of CPT to help patients manage their treatment, including between session assignments, readings, PTSD symptom monitoring, and mobile versions of CPT worksheets. CPT Coach is not intended to be used as self-help without the guidance of a professional mental healthcare provider.
CPT Coach was a collaborative effort between the VA’s National Center for PTSD, the VA’s Sierra Pacific (VISN21) MIRECC, and the DoD’s National Center for Telehealth and Technology. Additional thanks go to the Cincinnati VA Medical Center.
bug fixes and compatibility enhancements
Ratings and Reviews
Helpful but has bugs
Great app however once you complete the CQ Worksheets you can no longer see the Stuck Point, including in the examples. Once this is fixed on the next update, I will change my review.
Great for Civil War Vets
Is the only option for saving your homework really a photo? “Dearest Mother, I take pen in hand on the eve of battle, that a daguerreotype might memorialize these last fond sentiments.” Where is the cut-and-paste option for those of us who may not prefer leaving handwritten journals lying around to confirm what our family members suspect anyway? Even a PDF would be good. Sure, I’ll find a workaround, but it is frustrating to complete the first assignment on why you think the most messed-up thing you ever experienced happened and what it did to you then realize the app doesn’t accept your digital work. Maybe I’ll just take a “photo” of my cat. “Cat. Yep. Reckon that says it all.”
Keeps locking up
While I agree this has been very helpful as I've been working with a therapist on PTSD, it often freezes up and I have to restart my tablet. It also doesn't sync between devices, so the information I put on one device (iPhone & iPad) doesn't show up on both devices. I take my iPad with me to therapy, but using it on my phone is useless. It needs to be updated, but otherwise good assistant to therapy.
