Abstract

The purpose of this study is to conduct a preliminary evaluation of Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) for treatment of comorbid PTSD and sleep disturbance. This will include how treatment with ART impacts symptoms of PTSD and both subjective and objective measures of sleep disturbance. This latter aim is innovative and addresses the lack of objective data on sleep quality from previously examined psycho-therapeutic treatments for comorbid PTSD and sleep dysfunction.
