Survey on Clinical Experiences in Treating PTSD (Divs. 12 & 29)

From Dr. Marvin Goldfried:

Much in the way that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) provides physicians with a method for giving feedback on their experiences in using empirically supported drugs in clinical practice, the Society of Clinical Psychology (Division 12 of the American Psychological Association) and Division 29 (Psychotherapy) of the American Psychological Association, have created a mechanism whereby practicing therapists can report on their clinical experiences using empirically supported treatments (ESTs). In essence, this collaborative initiative on Building a Two-Way Bridge Between Research and Practice has established a procedure for practicing therapists to disseminate their clinical experiences. This is not only an opportunity for clinicians to share their experiences with other therapists, but can also offer clinically based information that researchers may use to investigate ways of improving treatment.

This collaborative initiative has already completed surveys of practicing clinicians on the use of CBT to treat panic, social anxiety, and general anxiety disorder, and these findings will be published shortly. We are now conducting clinical surveys on the use of CBT to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and would very much appreciate your input. It should take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete, which you can do online at:

We clearly recognize that your time is valuable, but believe that this is sorely need information that will benefit clinicians and researchers alike.

Thank you.

Marvin R. Goldfried, PhD for Divisions 12 and 29 of the American Psychological Association
