Improving Psychosocial Functioning in Older Veterans With PTSD


Brief description of study

The purpose of this project is to develop an intervention to improve psychosocial functioning and quality of life for older Veterans with partial or full PTSD.

Detailed Study Description

This project will develop, implement, and evaluate a group protocol geared toward restoring older Veterans to better, fuller functioning. This project will determine the feasibility and acceptability of such an intervention. The intervention developed will then be compared to a support group control condition. Primary outcomes are psychosocial functioning and quality of life, with PTSD and depressive symptoms as secondary outcomes. A complementary objective is to improve attitudes toward mental health treatment and to increase readiness for change and engagement in evidence-based psychotherapies, as appropriate. Results from this study will provide feasibility data for future development and testing of the intervention protocol.
